About the Siblings
Ann is known as a people pleaser. She is a loveable, helpful, caring and curious young lady. While she loves to meet new people, this can be a challenge as she struggles with understanding appropriate boundaries and personal space. Ann loves to read, go shopping and sing. She is a definite girlie girl and likes to spend her time looking at girls’ fashions in magazines. One day she hopes to become a fashion designer. Ann is somewhat weight conscious and therefore can be a picky eater. One of her favorite foods is steak. Like her sister, Mae is also a very curious girl. She has a humble personality, a kind heart and is caring towards others. She tends to make friends easily though this should be monitored as she can be influenced by others into making poor choices and has difficulties understanding personal boundaries. Mea relates best to children younger than she. Unlike her sister, she is not a picky eater. Her favorite food is pizza. She enjoys playing with her dolls, reading (especially the Bible) and shopping.
Educationally, Ann is not on grade level in her classes. She has deficiencies in the areas of cognitive learning and short term memory. She excels in and enjoys reading though she struggles with comprehension. An educational plan has been developed to help her achieve success. Ann has an impressive vocabulary and communicates well. Mae has autism but is classified as high functioning. She has been mainstreamed to regular educational classrooms, has adapted well and is excited about school. She also has an educational plan in place to help her reach her full scholastic potential. Therapy and medication management are utilized for both Ann and Mae to manage behaviors and address issues of respecting personal space and acceptable forms of touch with people they trust. Positive redirection and patience works well with the girls.
Ann and Mae are ready to find their adoptive home. Ann particularly has expressed not wanting to remain in foster care for the rest of her life. The girls desire to be adopted together. They would be most successful in a two parent home or with a single female who loves to listen and talk to children with curious minds. Their family should have patience and skills in setting appropriate boundaries and structure. These are loving young ladies who long for a family to nurture them and help them mature into healthy adults.
