Eight-year-old Freesia needs an adoptive family! Could you or someone you know be the right family for her? A $10,000 grant is available to help with Freesia’s adoption.
Freesia’s caregiver says that she is a cheerful and lively girl who gets along with everyone in their household, including her younger foster brother. She is active and likes to run and play, especially at the park, where her favorite activity is going down the slide. She is content playing by herself or with her younger brother.
After discussing adoption with her social worker, Freesia was happy to hear about the concept of adoption and having a permanent, loving family. She welcomed the idea of having her own “daddy” and “mummy,” even asking what they might look like, and expressed excitement about flying in a plane.
Freesia is in good overall physical health after experiencing some minor drug withdrawal symptoms after delivery. Freesia sometimes needs extra help regulating her emotions and is generally respectful and responsive to supportive input from her teachers and foster mother. Freesia attends a school for children with mild intellectual disabilities, where she is making steady academic progress. She also receives speech therapy and has good cooperative relationships with her teachers and classmates.
Freesia needs an adoptive family with access to excellent educational and therapeutic resources, who will provide the loving, patient and encouraging care she needs to thrive and reach her fullest potential. Freesia’s adoptive family should understand and be open to the unknowns of prenatal exposure.
Currently we are only able to accept families in states with Holt branch offices, including California, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin.
