Quick-witted and curiousSara (9151)
Sara is a delightful, outgoing girl with a quick wit and a lot of curiosity! She’s inquisitive about, well, everything, and wants to learn as much as she can. That learning pays off too — she’s been earning A’s and B’s in school! In many ways, Sara is a typical elementary school girl: she loves playing with Barbies, enjoys being creative, and especially delights in picking out cute clothes to wear!
Sara has significant medical concerns that make a lung transplant her best opportunity for a sustained life. She is not yet on the transplant list, but has begun the process, and needs a family that can be committed to her through this time. Although she spends a lot of time at medical appointments, that hasn’t impacted Sara’s ability to have a smile when you need one, to be a leader among her friends, and to keep exploring the wide world around her.
The home that would be best for Sara is a two-parent family that can provide her with plenty of support and stability. She does best when she is in a structured environment with clear and consistent expectations. She would do well with another child in the home, but because Sara has complex medical needs, parents will need to ensure that they are able to give her the attention that she needs to maintain her health.
It is important to Sara to keep a relationship with her sisters, who live out of state. Interested families should be able to help manage Sara’s medical concerns over time and should also understand the impact that trauma can have on a child.
