Name, age: Tianna, 7.

Background: Tianna is very creative and artistic. Favorite pastimes include doing crafts, playing sports, riding her bike and singing.

Tianna appears to be on target developmentally. She enjoys school in the second grade and is doing well academically in a regular classroom. She receives extra support in reading. She does best with structured activities.

Tianna benefits from counseling. She would like to maintain contact with her biological brother.

Needed: A couple or single mom with a flexible schedule and plenty of time for parenting. She would do best as an only child or the youngest of much older siblings. An adoptive family must provide opportunities for her to participate in the African American community.
