Madeline has a family!
7 years old * super cute * super shy * great self help skills * loves to be outside * has the softest laugh
September 2018 Report – 1 week after arriving at Bethel
“Madeline is 7 and super cute, but super shy. Her biggest obstacle is that she is not very confident in her ability to do things independently, even though she has all the skills. For example, I’ll be holding her hand as we’re walking and she’ll be fine, but as soon as I let go and tell her to walk on her own she gets super scared.”
“She has great self help skills. She can communicate well, is potty trained, and can dress herself, but she’s always so timid and worried that her lack of vision will get in her way. She’s been slowly feeling her way around Bethel, including pulling every new person she meet’s down so she can feel their face. Our goal is to help Madeline gain more confidence and understand that there’s so much she can do! She loves to be outside and has the softest laugh when she feels the wind on her face. She’s 7 years old and waiting for her forever family!”
