Wednesday's Child: 13-Year-Old Aylin

(MARE) - Aylin is a girl of Hispanic descent with a great sense of humor and who loves to draw. Those that meet Aylin immediately note her big smile and it is clear that she takes pride in her appearance. Aylin enjoys working on crafts projects, playing outside, riding a bike and watching television. Aylin likes school but at times needs support with forming friendships. She currently receives extra supports in class for social and emotional needs.

Legally freed for adoption, Aylin is very much looking forward to becoming part of a loving family. Her social worker feels that she will do best in a family with two mothers, a mother and a father, or a single mother. Aylin will do well as an only-child or with siblings that are older than her. She should be the youngest in the home, if possible. A family for Aylin must support her relationship with her younger sister, as well as help her visit with her biological mother twice a year, as specified in an Open Adoption Agreement.
