Maya is a very creative girl who has a love for music and singing and expressing herself through art and writing. An avid reader who is very bright, Maya enjoys school! Maya has a lot to be proud of, too, at school, where her worker reports she does very well academically and is right on track. Last year at her previous school, Maya was well-liked by staff and students. Currently, she is settling into her new school. For the 2016-2017 year, she is in 5th grade where she is expected to continue to do well academically.
Maya needs to have a very structured, consistent daily routine with firm, clear rules, limits, and consequences which have been discussed with her ahead of time. Overall, Maya is a healthy young girl who is pretty much on track developmentally, but she does require a level of structure both at home and at school that includes having an attentive, caring adult nearby to redirect and cue her to stay on track behaviorally.
In addition to supervision, Maya is benefiting from participating in group and individual counseling to help her work through her issues and to develop the tools and strategies to help her make the necessary behavioral changes to be successful in an adoptive family. Given her love for dogs and horses, it just may be that she could benefit from participating in canine or equine therapy.
Maya’s social worker is looking forward to hearing from single moms and couples who have the experience and the positive parenting skills to bring to parenting this creative and talented girl. Being willing to use appropriate family community resources to assist Maya will be important, too. If you are a family that would welcome the opportunity to help Maya grow emotionally and behaviorally and to become a valued and beloved member of your family, please contact us soon.
