May I introduce you to beautiful Leilani. She is 12 years old and was born with a genetic defect called cri-du-chat-syndrome. It is a rare genetic disorder due to a missing part (deletion) of chromosome 5. Its name is a French term (cat-cry or call of the cat) referring to the characteristic cat-like cry of affected children. I know her already for 5 years and she really touches my heart with her uncompromising way to show her feelings. She is pure and innocent. She is blessed with a loving family who always stand by her side.
