Lexi is a spunky and energetic girl who is very outgoing and easily makes friends. She enjoys being active and would love to try various sports, especially cheerleading. Lexi’s favorite past time is spending time with the family’s pets, with whom she is very gentle and caring. One of Lexi’s strengths is her ability to express herself and make all of her wants and needs known.

While Lexi and her sister have a strong bond, Lexi thrives on receiving individual attention from the important adults in her life. Lexi’s family needs to be patient and give her the support she needs so she can continue working in therapy in regard to her trauma behaviors.

Note: Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) has ceased offering the non-relative Adoption Only program. CYFD does continue to offer the Foster Care program. The Foster Care Program differs in that that the goal of the program is to ultimately reunite the child with their biological parent while the child is in your care for approximately a year. Should you become a Foster Parent it is also a possibility that the children that you foster may become available for adoption.
