*Amy was adopted from an Asian country 6 years ago. She is 11, turning 12 in December.
Amy really enjoys reading. She likes Junie B. Jones books and all kinds of other books. Books are her favorite possession. She is also learning to weave on a small hand-held loom and learning embroidery. She has very good fine motor skills. Amy has mild Cerebral Palsy and uses a forearm crutch to assist her balance when away from home.
Amy is very obedient and always tries to do what she’s told. She is helpful around the house and has good manners. She does best if she has a list to help her remember what daily tasks she has to complete.
She has what is called a “moving window” of memory. She remembers 1-1.5 years into the past. She retains most of the skills she learns (dressing, eating, language, basic math), but not memories of events or people.
Amy has been in public school until this year. She is now homeschooling and really enjoys the peace and quiet of being home and doing her work at home. She gets up early, completes her morning tasks and is sitting at the table waiting for school to start each morning. She is working through 4th grade math and 5th grade in all other subjects.
We would like to find a new adoptive family for Amy who has no other children younger than her (age 12).
We have an in-depth profile written on Amy that we would love to share with you. If you are interested in learning more about adopting her, please write to us at [email protected] and ask for her profile.
This is a private adoption, so a state or foster home study might not work. A state authorized private domestic or international home study is generally required. Due to state laws, we are not able to place this child in CT, MA, MO, NY or DE.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated. This adoption qualifies for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
*not this child’s real name: we will never use a child’s real name online to help protect his/her privacy!
