Girl, age 3
Shayna turned three in fall of 2012. With her mother having a mental illness, Shayna was not being well taken care of. Though her mother was not aggressive in any way, she simply did not have the intelligence to properly take care of her. Also, it is assumed that her biological father has passed since her birth. Sharon has been diagnosed with microcephaly, a neurological disease that impedes her mental development by affecting her cerebral growth.
Shayna requires supervision but is learning different avenues of independence. She is very exploratory, seeking alternative ways to achieve small goals. She is also learning to brush her teeth, and other small self-care tasks. With a very loving foster home, Sharon has been able to bond and attach to her foster family members and regularly attends to physical and occupational therapies. If you are interested in learning more about Sharon because you, or someone close to you, may be interested in adopting her, it is possible to translate her 2010 MRI report as well as her 2012 TAC.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her. The agency anticipates they’ll have her file for 3-6 months.
