Hi there! My name is Kayte. Here is my story. When I was very young, my parents gave me to a Baby House. It was not a very pleasant place to live. When I was six years old, I was sent to the orphanage that I would call my home.
In October 2017, Natasha, Mission Ukraine Children’s Hope massage therapist, gave Kayte a first course of a twenty-day massage treatment. This included play-therapy and sandbox-therapy. Kayte displayed immediate results. She was like a flower whose inner beauty was hidden in a bud, suddenly revealed! Her face shone with joy and happiness! Her emotions were gently channeled in the right direction.
Kayte had no ability to speak with words. This along with aggressive and emotional outbursts made it very difficult for Kayte to function in her world. Thanks to speech related massage therapy, Kayte began to pronounce words.
Working with hand motor skills helped her develop imagination and thinking. She loves to paint and talk about her work with great enthusiasm. Kayte has developed observation along with purposefulness.
Kayte’s heart is filled with love and if you look into her eyes you will see how much kindness, openness and sincerity are in them. Her life in the orphanage continues and the massage therapy for Kayte also continues
Kayte is usually an active and calm girl. Last month, April 2021, when Natasha wanted to give her amassage, she was aggressive, crying for no reason. Perhaps something happened between the children, or perhaps this is a transitional age. The first two days Kayte did not want to undress so that Natasha could give her a massage. When Natasha said that she would not give her a massage, she screamed and kicked other children out of the office.
Once Natasha noticed that Kayte was supposedly in a good mood, she approached her. She offered to go for a massage; Kayte agreed. Natasha tried to understand why she had such behavior and what caused such aggression. She knows that Kayte is a kind and sincere girl, but that something has happened. As a result, Natasha managed to persuade her to receive a course of massage.Natasha also created play therapy for her, using a game that Kayte likes.
After the course of massage therapy, Kayte calmed down and came to her senses. The nurse says that she had such a reaction to the fact that many children went home for the holidays. The orphans remained in the orphanage. Kayte is an orphan and of course she also wants to have a family. Perhaps this is the real reason for this behavior.
Kayte‘s main problem is that her speech apparatus is underdeveloped; she cannot speak well. Many words have to guess what she is talking about. Therefore, it is difficult for Kayte to open up. She cannot say what she wants and this blocks the mental state of the child. Because of this, sheoften closes into herself. Her peers do not understand her and do not want to enter into communication with her.
