Andra (born 17.10.1993)

Andra came to Harja when she was three. She could only drink from a bottle, had little speech and a hearing impairment,but loved to touch anything furry. Later, she struggled with writing and all the schoolwork but the carers were enormously helpful to her. Flori, who shared a bedroom with her, was always calm, always there for her. As a result, she was able to pass the necessary school exams to be accepted by a vocational school, where she boards and is training to be a cook, specialising in patisserie.

She is very happy, and does not lack boyfriends! She comes home for the holidays with Dan, who is at the same school.

We are so lucky that this vocational school, recommended by the Department of Child Protection, could take them. There are few places like that in Romania.
