  • You should probably talk to a therapist about this. You don't know what kind of things she went through, or any abuses she suffered. Also, it's not uncommon for kids in orphnages to have a hard time adjusting because they aren't used to getting love and attention. Often times the orphanages are understaffed and the babies don't get hugged and kissed enough. This can impair their relationships later in life. Talk to your pediatrician and ask for a referral.
