Regina

Born: 1993
Financial adoption: Fam. Anja van Vlerken, Fam. R. Rouvoet, Holland.
 
Since her stay at PCC Hand in Hand Community Regina has been talking, walking, smiling and singing without any display of emotion. There is no attempt to get in touch with people, Regina lives in her own world. Her epileptic fits are violent and hard to control. Regina likes to kneel down in front of adults and speak long non-sensical but pleading sentences that can be heart rendering. One feels powerless because she does not allow herself to be reached even while pleading for it. Regina does one thing very well which is singing. She loves to sing and knows the words and tunes to all the popular Twi folksongs. Here she finds temporary consolation of her estranged ness.
