Ten-month-old Tayla’s photo has been on Holt’s waiting child photolisting for a month. “In that time, no one has inquired about adopting her,” a Holt staff member in the waiting child program says.

We hope that sharing Tayla’s story will help inspire interest and lead Tayla to the loving family she needs a deserves!

Born on October 15th, 2014, Tayla lives in the NE Asia with a loving foster family. Upon her first well-baby check, it was discovered that she had ptosis, or drooping eyelid, developmental delays and a possible brain anomaly that is currently being followed up on. Her foster mother says she sleeps through the night, loves taking baths, takes good naps and loves to be held.  When she’s hungry, Tayla playfully sucks on her fingers. Her social worker calls her a “cute and lovely little girl with fine skin and tiny features.” To help address her delays, Tayla began physical therapy in February and has since drastically improved. “Her foster mother does a very good job at helping her with her therapy,” Tayla’s social worker says.

Tayla needs a family who is open to her needs and who can provide her with any medical care or therapies that she may need in the future.

“We hope that [Tayla] will soon meet good permanent parents who will accept her medical condition and love her as much as she is loved now,” Tayla’s social worker says.  “We hope that she will grow up healthy with no particular medical concerns.”
