Eleven-year-old Lainey is a sweet, creative and curious girl. She loves to sing, dance and listen to music. Lainey also enjoys playing dress up! She needs a loving family who will give her the care and support she needs to thrive.
Lainey has Down syndrome and hepatitis B, but she has great overall health. She attends a class for children with Down syndrome at school, as well as a standard first-grade class throughout the week. She will need support in school to help her read and learn math, but her language skills are improving every day.
When Lainey is in a new environment with new people, she tends to be shy, quiet and observing. It will take time for her to grow familiar with her surroundings, but she is extremely happy and confident when she becomes comfortable!
The best fit for Lainey is a permanent, loving family that can provide her with the therapies and education she needs. They should help her feel safe and create a structured daily routine, but they should also be ready for a lot of dancing and fun!
