Beautiful Cassidy is described as outgoing, active, and clever girl who very much enjoys dancing and music. Cassidy is said to be very girly too! She loves to have her hair styled and she will look into the mirror to admire the hairstyle. Her update from 2019 highlights her communication skills. She can connect two words, such as “thank you” and she can also say words like mom, dad, aunt, eat, etc. When she sees rain, she will say “It’s raining!” She can makes sounds and say words, though not clearly. Cassidy understands all instructions and she can count to 10. She can walk, run, hop, go up and down stairs, and climb on her own. Cassidy enjoys playing and building with blocks, splashing around in the bathtub, and watching cartoons and singing/dancing shows. She loves to imitate songs and dances she see on tv! Cassidy can toilet independently, but she does sometimes need a little help getting clean. She is a good eater and can eat and drink by herself. Cassidy can put on and take off her shoes, but she does need some assistance with dressing. She can wash her face, but doesn’t like brushing her teeth. Cassidy needs adult assistance with teeth brushing. She is said to be a good sleeper. Cassidy has a cheerful personality, she loves to laugh, and can be silly at times. It’s hard to understand why Cassidy has waited this long for a family. She has some pretty great grants available for her adoption too. It is our hope that Cassidy is home to celebrate her next birthday with her forever family!
