Great student who stands up for othersElania (9124C)
Elania, who goes by Lanie, is a girl with a huge heart who is always helping people! She can’t stand bullying and will stand up for the underdog every time. If she sees a situation where she thinks someone is being treated unfairly, she will step in to help out! Lanie likes to show her thoughtfulness for others through little artistic gifts she’s created.
Lanie is an exceptional student who loves to learn, and she prides herself on her good grades! She enjoys learning about everything, although especially science and animals. She loves animals so much that she hopes to one day become a vet! Lanie is a voracious reader who knows that a good book can take you anywhere!
Lanie would do best in a two-parent home. It would be best if she were the only child in the home, or at least the youngest by several years, so that she can receive plenty of attention and support. Lanie will thrive with parents who can provide stability and structure, and in a home where she has a consistent routine. She needs someone to encourage her to achieve her goals while providing unconditional love and support. A slow transition to a forever home will be required.
Lanie has siblings in Indiana with whom she has a strong bond; maintaining that connection is a must. Interested families should be committed to nurturing the sibling bond that they all have. The ideal family will be experienced in trauma-informed parenting, and will be able to demonstrate patience as Lanie adjusts to being in a new environment. Interested families should understand the impact trauma can have on children.
