Skylar, 9, Loves Dancing and Playing Musical Instruments
Skylar is a charming little girl who loves to dance, listen to music, sing along with songs on the radio, play musical instruments and use her imagination.
She enjoys books, toys, movies and music.
Skylar also loves school, which offers her the structure and routine on which she thrives. She is headed to fifth grade next school year and does well socially with her peers, though she can get upset at times when she is bullied or if she needs to depend on herself.
Skylar would describe herself as "funny and loving" and does well with one-on-one attention and caring support from adults.
The Right Family Match
Skylar will need a family to go above and beyond to show her their love, affection and attention. They also will need to follow through with routine and structure.
Skylar has three siblings living in western Massachusetts with whom she will need virtual and in-person contact at least monthly.
