Hailey is a happy and artistic 9-year-old Caucasian girl. She enjoys trying new things and loves being outside especially if she can be by the ocean. Hailey receives support in school through an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP). Hailey benefits from structure and does well with 1:1 attention. She has made tremendous progress over the last year, including but not limited to, identifying words to describe how she is feeling. Hailey will need a family that is able to support her current therapeutic work around her past trauma.
Legally freed for adoption, Hailey will need to have post adoption visits with her birth father as well as picture and letter correspondence with her birth mother. She also has a supportive relationship with her aunts which also should continue. Hailey would likely do best in a home without animals. Her social worker is open to exploring different family types for Hailey but she will need to be placed with a family with no children or significantly older children who could serve as role models.
