Born December 2013
Maia is a beautiful young girl in search of her forever home! Maia spent her first few years living with her mother and 6 biological siblings. Unfortunately, her mother was unable to provide safe and healthy living conditions for her children and after a long process, Maia was brought into care in 2018. She has lived with her loving foster family since January of 2019.
Maia is a fun and creative girl who enjoys doing arts and crafts. All of her bright and colorful paintings will bring cheer into your home and will put a smile on your face! Maia adapts to change well and, if given the proper support, will integrate well into life with her new family. Maia has developmental delays and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder and attends a special education program. The shift to remote learning with the COVID-19 pandemic has placed additional challenges on Maia’s ability to learn. Her foster mother supports her with her school work; however, her teachers describe her performance as low. Maia receives speech therapy for a language delay that has affected her vocabulary and pronunciation. Perhaps Maia’s biggest challenge is learning to manage her behavioral disorders. She has emotional outbursts and displays physically aggressive actions with some of her peers and adults. An interdisciplinary team of psychologists and therapists have worked with her on a number of therapies including medications. This is an ongoing process to find the best intervention.
Maia needs a loving family who will support her as she works through the challenges of her past while integrating into a new life with her loving family. The right family for Maia will be open to and great advocates for finding the best treatments for her. She needs to feel valued and respected by her new family to allow her self-confidence to flourish. Maia loves to play games with her foster family and peers and can’t wait to have weekend game nights with YOU!
