This is Kaitlynn.
She is an 11-year-old girl.
Kaitlynn is engaging, intelligent, active and caring. She is eager to learn new things, which she does very quickly. Some of Kaitlynn's favorite things are books, dolls, teddy bears and riding her bike. At mealtime she likes fried chicken, pizza, macaroni and cheese and salad, but she is allergic to almonds. Kaitlynn has siblings, and she would like to be able to maintain contact with them.
This young lady would benefit from a strong, two-parent family willing to continue working with her to learn good social skills, positive interactions and how to process and direct her feelings. An experienced family familiar with special needs will be ideal. Kaitlynn struggles in forming relationships with her peers and would do best in a home where she is an only child.
