- Case #Catherine
healthy, typically developing teenager. She had tuberculosis of the tracheobronchial lymph nodes in 2005 and has had no complications since her recovery from the disease.
Catherine is a creative girl with well-developed fine and gross motor skills. She shows figurative and abstract thinking, imagination, and great orientation in time and space. Catherine communicates easily, has a rich vocabulary and maintains active social contacts with others. Catherine loves animals.
Catherine lacks a sense of belonging and can feel depressed from time to time, especially after the deaths of members in her biological family. She is aware of her own feelings and those of others. She works with a counselor to address some of her emotional needs.
Catherine is an average student, however, it is expected that her results could be much improved if she were properly motivated for her academic work and attended class regularly.
Catherine has lived in a foster family since 2013. She was initially uncertain about the idea of adoption, but having now seen one of her foster siblings join a forever family, she is much more open and positive toward the possibility. Catherine needs a family that can guide her safely to adulthood and help her make good choices for herself.
