Steve's Families 4 Kids/Meet Kaitlynn!

Kaitlynn is an engaging, intelligent, active young girl. She is eager to learn new things, which she does very quickly. Some of Kaitlynn’s favorite things are books, dolls, teddy bears, and riding her bike. At mealtime she likes fried chicken, pizza, macaroni & cheese and salad, but is allergic to almonds.  This young lady would benefit from a strong, two parent family willing to continue working with her to learn good social skills, positive interactions, and how to process and direct her feelings. An experienced family that is familiar working with a traumatized child will be ideal. Kaitlynn needs support forming relationships with her peers and would do best in a home where she is an only child.  Kaitlynn also has siblings, and would like to remain in contact with them.

Story: Darion and Daniel have a close family bond. Like all siblings they play together, laugh together, cry together, and get on each other’s nerves from time-to-time. They are both very active children and like to be involved in a variety of outdoor and athletic activities.

Darion is a protective sister and cares for her brother very much. She enjoys tumbling, swimming, baseball, and riding her bike. She enjoys the girly things in life, too. Darion does very well academically and enjoys being a leader in school.
