This is Arianna T.
She is an 11-year-old girl.
Meet Arianna! Arianna has a very engaging personality and is a very sweet and caring person once she develops a close bond with someone. Ariana enjoys reading, especially reading the Bible and books about cats. She has participated in many clubs, including Spanish club, running club and playing on a basketball team. She also likes to attend church and the various activities at church. Arianna is an intelligent young lady who is able to advocate for her wants and needs. While she is able to express some of her emotions, she continues to need support in utilizing her coping skills to be able to self-regulate and could benefit from support from her adoptive family. Arianna also greatly benefits from individual attention on a daily basis from her caregivers.
Arianna would benefit from a two parent family who can provide her and her brothers with structure and clear boundaries. The family needs to have a lot of patience in order to teach the sibling group how to maintain healthy sibling boundaries with each other. Arianna and her siblings would benefit from being the youngest/only children in the home as they need support and guidance so the children can continue working in therapy in regard to their trauma behaviors.
