Dada, birthday September 6, age 10

Rosalinda Jean (aka Dada), is a sassy, spunky, 10 year old with the attitude of a teenager. She became part of the OTP family, in 2009 when Sarah began sharing custody of her with her cognitively delayed mother who now has two more children.


Dada can act quite shy, and yet somehow maintains a disposition of confidence.

Dada wants to be a midwife when she grows up. She has shown a strong interest in the work Sarah does at the birth center, and has had the opportunity to attend a few births, including that of her little sisters.


At school, Dada struggled when she attended a public school, and had was constantly failing classes, having to go back and re-do the same grade twice. This year she began in an international school where she has discovered how much she enjoys reading and writing – mostly in English.
