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.

It was already dark when I passed this brightly lit window and I could not resist. Here they played Májiàng (Mahjong), a very popular board game.
Almost everywhere I go in China people take their time together for playing cards and board games. Mostly sitting outside in parks, in front of their houses or even next to the streets, wherever there is room for a little table and stool.
