Texas Children

We love to watch Peppa Pig and spend time coloring/looking through books at the kitchen table.

Karma and Athena came into care in February 2018. During their time in foster care, they have been in the same placements together. Karma and Athena enjoy being around each other and have an understanding that they are siblings, but also like to play solo. They both have high medical needs and have consistent follow up appointments for their care. They both enjoy watching Peppa Pig, getting in the pool, looking through books and coloring together. Both girls are nonverbal, but Athena does know a few signs to communicate and Karma knows a few words to communicate. Karma and Athena are very loving, affectionate, and curious of their surroundings.

 

I enjoy watching Peppa Pig and sitting at the table with my foster mom. I like to be held and have one on one attention.

Karma is a silly, affectionate little girl. She enjoys watching Peppa Pig, getting in the pool, looking through books and coloring. Karma is a PMN child and receives 15 attending hours per week. Her attendant helps her with getting dressed, bathing, etc. She likes to eat her food mixed together and really likes sauces. Some of her favorite foods are pork chops, bacon, baked potatoes and ranch style beans. She is non-verbal but is able to make sounds and say a few words. She currently wears a helmet during the day and has a tether when going in public. She is not potty-trained at this time and wears pull ups to school. She is in special education classes due to her medical needs. She does well in school and receives services in school. She receives OT and PT on a weekly basis as well. She will be utilizing AFOs and a back brace based on a recent orthopedic appointment.

Karma will do well in a two-parent household. Both caregivers should have a background in fostering children with medical needs. It would be appropriate for the caregivers to be experienced and have an understanding of the services that she needs. She is a very sweet girl and enjoys getting attention. She will need continued positive support in the home and at school. She has several appointments for follow up each month and the caregivers will need to understand the importance of staying up to date with the appointments. She does not have a strong understanding of adoption and has been in 2 separate foster homes since being in care. She tends to have a closer bond with her caregivers than her peers.

 

I enjoy playing with my giant slinky and rubber snake. I like to sit in my highchair and eat my snacks while watching TV.
