More than anything, these two sweet kids, Shyanne and Travis, want to be together. They look forward to the day a family will bring them together and provide the love, structure and support they desperately need. Your willingness to help them stay connected in some way with extended family will be the cornerstone of building their trust in relationships that last.
Hi, my name is Shyanne. Im a happy girl and I enjoy laughing. I love nature and being outdoors like visiting the ocean. I would love living out in the country where there are animals horses, cows, sheep, goats, chickens, guinea pigs and llamas. I also like to write stories. I like volleyball and basketball. I like science at school.
The family I dream of will be artistic, have fun together going on trips and giving us attention. Thats important. I hope we can be the only kids. Or they could be younger than us, but only one or two because we need attention. I would like parents who will attend a Christian church with us.
Shyanne is an active girl who loves animals. She is athletic, but is also a girly-girl who loves being fashionably dressed, shopping and looking nice.
Shyanne would do well with experienced parents who are familiar with or able to access many community resources, including professionals as they are needed.
Travis strengths are that he likes to please adults and makes good eye contact with adults. He has a great sense of humor and a wonderful smile. He thrives on positive attention from adults. He is enjoyable and happy a lot of the time.
More difficult areas of need are related to times when Travis behavior may be hard to understand or when he feels less lovable. Simply put, Travis needs patience when folks may feel they have none left. He needs adults to help him out of that bad place and into one that demonstrates no matter what kinds of love. Travis doesnt learn, process, or remember in the same the way most other kids can. He is not usually capable of cause and effect learning. Travis needs a very structured home and parents who can give information in small doses.
The close supervision of at least one patient at-home parent will be a must. Travis can get along with other children if there is an adult to help him interpret social cues and to coach his interactions. He loves animals but has no understanding that he can hurt animals and shouldnt be left alone with them. Could you be that patient, involved parent?
