Fashion, art, gymnastics and outdoor activities are a few of Yomy's favorite activities.  

Yomy is very athletic and recently started horseback riding lessons.  She very much enjoys these lessons and the horses.  She would love to continue with gymnastic lessons in her new family. Running, basketball and dance are also some of her favorite physical activities but Yomy also enjoys relaxing by crocheting and drawing. Yomy describes herself as being shy, friendly, athletic, full of energy and having a good sense of humor.

Yomi is legally freed for adoption.  Yomy's new family must be open to monthly or more frequent  in-person visits with her brother who lives currently in western MA.  Also, Yomy would benefit from a family who will foster her love for gymnastics and other interests.
