Wednesday’s Child: 3-Year-Old Lynelle
BOSTON (CBS) – Lynelle is a bright and fun-loving 3-year-old girl of African American and Caucasian descent. She has been diagnosed with Hypotonic Cerebral Palsy and wears short leg braces, but she is medically stable. An active and curious youngster, Lynelle can walk, jump, and run. She is getting used to her limitations and would thrive in an adoptive family who can help her reach her full potential.
Lynelle is a tall, confident little girl with a great sense of humor. She loves playing with other children and would do well in a home where she is the youngest child. She loves to dress like a girl and play princess games, but she can also hang out with foster brother playing video games. Her favorite cartoons are Mickey Mouse and Handy Manny.
Lynelle has some developmental delays, but overall she is an active and integrated member at her preschool. She is capable of learning and is willing to try anything. Like most 3-year-olds, she enjoys doing things independently. She receives all the ongoing services she needs in school. Legally free for adoption, Lynelle would blossom in a single or two-parent family who can advocate for her and support her through life’s endeavors.
