MOLLY WILL TURN 14 and AGE OUT in JULY 2019

Molly wants a family with a Mom and a Dad * sensible * headstrong * sometimes quiet * enjoys swimming and playing outside *


Personality/Interests

An active girl who is headstrong.Though she is sometimes quiet, she is extroverted and enjoys talking and spending time with other kids. She’s sensible and loves for things to be clean. Before she leaves a room, she will tidy things up on her own initiative. Like many little girls, she likes acting like a teacher. Although she is growing up, she still likes playing with toys like Barbies. When she is done playing with her friends, she’ll sit and watch them play while she draws, or she’ll style her hair in the mirror. Molly loves sweets and enjoys swimming and going outside to play. She would love to have stars on the ceiling of her room, but mostly she is eager to have her own mom and dad and have a happy life.

Diagnosis and Physical Development

Molly is diagnosed with congenital spina bifida and in 2006, she underwent surgery for myelomeningocele with good post-op recovery. Videos show she can walk, dribble a basketball, jump rope, and hula hoop for a long time! Molly is able to adapt quickly to a new environment.

Education

Molly moved to a boarding school in September 2012. While caregivers don’t notice any developmental delays, her grades are not very strong. That said, her best subject is English.

Molly is waiting for a family on the shared list, but Madison Adoption Associates was able to get a good recent update for her. Molly is doing quite well, but it is important that we find her a family with a MOM AND A DAD, as that is what she wants. Single moms will not be permitted to adopt Molly. An experienced adoptive family or a family who has adopted a child ten or older would be best for Molly!

TwentyLess is not an agency, it is an advocacy site run by an adoptive mom (me) who would love to see every child with a family of their very own.
