HI! My name is Alexis.
"I love to swim!"

And here's what others say...
Alexis is a joyful eight-year old girl of Caucasian descent whose smile and laugh lights up the room! Alexis has had many medical challenges in her short life, but she has an optimistic spirit and brings so much joy to those who know her. Alexis utilizes a wheelchair due to being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. While she cannot speak, Alexis makes her needs known in other ways through adaptive technology and non-verbal cues. She also does make sounds and her caregivers are very attuned to what her different tones mean. She attends a collaborative school where all her needs can be met. She thrives on the daily routine that her school provides for her. Alexis loves being around other children and likes participating in different activities with her peers. Alexis relies on her caregivers for all of her needs to be met. She loves to be around other people and animals and has shown interest in toys, colors, sounds, and swimming!

Not yet legally freed for adoption, Alexis would do best in a two parent family or with a single mom, with or without other children in the home. Alexis currently resides in a foster home with other children where she is thriving. She has a positive relationship with some of her paternal family members and birth mother and these relationships would be beneficial to continue post-adoption. A future family would need to collaborate with Alexis’ team to understand her daily living needs, routine and schedule. Alexis’ caregivers and team want nothing more for her to find a family. They believe she will bring lots of joy and laughter to the right family!
