This is a bad, fuzzy picture of a "calm" little girl who is now 3. Not only is she an additional child, she has an out-of-date picture that doesn't show her best.
But she has a beautiful name: Hope.
(This may or may not be a translation of her real name.)
Hope has hope because she is listed at all, and thus probably available.
Hope has Hope because God loves her--and he is the Hope of the hopeless.
She lives in a country where people with intellectual disabilities are not valued, where their parents are encouraged to give them up at birth (not too different from our own country a few decades ago). She doesn't have parents or grandparents who take care of her. But our mighty God has a plan for her... and He wants her to know a family so that she can know Him.
