Syriana is looking forward to becoming part of an adoptive family.  Syriana dreams of one day having a family dog, the opportunity to take gymnastics and art classes, and to have a family vacation to Disney and Legoland. 

Syriana shared that she would like a potential adoptive family to know that she is brave, but afraid of insects, spiders, and worms.  She is open to having a mom, a mom and dad or a two mom family.  Syriana’s three wishes for a family are to respect her, to be nice, and to let her choose a name for the family dog.  Her social worker says that the ideal family for Syriana would be a family that has had parenting experience.
