This is Estrella.
She is a 6-year-old girl.
Meet Estrella! Estrella, who is a compassionate child, is very curious and likes to learn new things and meet new people. She is sweet and will easily engage in conversations. Likes her siblings, Estrella also participates in physical activities, with gymnastics being her sport of choice. In addition, Estrella also enjoys coloring and drawing. Estrella is a very independent child who is an advocate for herself, but is also learning to lean on others for support. She keeps to herself and prefers the company of her siblings over her peers, but she is learning the tools to be able to connect with her peers in the future and maintain those positive connections.
Estrella would benefit from a two parent family who can provide her and her siblings with structure and clear boundaries. The family needs to have a lot of patience in order to help teach this sibling group how to maintain healthy sibling boundaries with each other. The family also needs to be able to accept their bond as siblings as well as accept them as individuals. Estrella 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.
