Hello everyone, I'm known as Silvia! I'm so glad you are interested in knowing more about me.


Here is a younger picture of me so you can see how much I've grown

Birthdate: October 28, 2015

Since: November 15, 2017

"Silvia is the sweetest thing in the world. She looks at us with her beautiful brown eyes and she wins everybody’s heart. She is alert and knows how to get what she wants. She is 4 years old but small. Her parents died a few years ago. Silvia loves to go preschool and takes it as a serious task!"

- Corrie Ockhuysen

We praise the Lord that Silvia is growing up and getting even sweeter than before.
