Social workers report that Gigi is honest and mature for her age. They say that she communicates her thoughts and feelings well, and she is affectionate towards the people she is comfortable around.

Could you or someone you know be the right family for Gigi?

The best family for Gigi should understand or be willing to learn about the challenges of adopting an older child. Also, they should have access to excellent educational and English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) resources. Gigi would thrive as the youngest or only child in the family.
