Yara (Girl) 7 Years Old
Birthday: July 2011
Special needs: Mild mental and physical disabilities, mixed developmental disorder, Hepatitis C.
Meet Yara! Our six-year-old has a mild mental and physical disability handbook and has been diagnosed with mixed developmental disorder. She was placed with a foster family when she was just under two years old as her parents have a history of drug use and a relative was concerned that Yara was being neglected. During placement, it was found that she had Hepatitis C and is allergic to eggs, milk and fried food. Her allergies can inflame her eczema, so her caretaker is sure to monitor her diet.
Yara can be shy at first, but after encouragement, proves to be lively and playful. She loves to weave and enjoys braiding her hair. She is very sensitive to changes in her daily routine, so it is necessary to be patient and understanding with her while she gets used to what is happening around her. She has started itinerant counseling and requires reminders to stay focused while she is in class. Yara is looking for a stable, healthy, and loving home.
