Tatiana is described by her social workers as both funny and lovable. One of her wishes for 2024 is to try gymnastics, and she enjoys taking swimming lessons. Recently, Tatiana has begun equine therapy, which she is really enjoying.

Tatiana loves putting braids in her hair or pulling it back in a ponytail. She also loves to paint her nails or get them done at a salon for a special treat. Tatiana's favorite thing to do is play with make-up. You'll also find her drawing, riding her bike, and watching movies.

Tatiana has four siblings that she loves spending time with either on Zoom, by phone, or in person. A family should be open to helping Tatiana maintain her sibling connections. There is an Open Adoption Agreement with her biological father, which includes only updated letters.

Tatiana will benefit from joining a loving family of any constellation that can provide her with stability, structure, and a dependable routine. She will do best as an only child or with older siblings. An ideal family will be able to navigate mental health and educational systems and be able to act as a strong advocate for Tatiana.
