Armida from Texas
Armida, who prefers to go by "Mimi," is a friendly, curious, and determined young girl. She is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Armida makes some sounds and she knows how to say "hi." Mimi is social, seeks attention and affection from preferred caregivers, and likes to be close to and snuggle with others. She enjoys eating and looking in the mirror. Mimi has a fascination with water and enjoys drinking it. Mimi is a good eater but does have food aversions to spicy and sour foods, and she enjoys finger foods. She attends school where she is provided with supportive services to help her reach her potential. Mimi also participates in the Special Olympics at her school. Mimi needs patient role models and caregivers who will assist and guide her in strengthening her skills. Visit me at the Bluebonnet Country Heart Gallery.
Mimi will benefit and thrive best with a family who will provide a nurturing and structured environment where she will continue to grow and learn. She needs a family who is familiar with or willing to explore the areas of Autism to provide her with the appropriate life-long care and services. Her family will need to understand her limitations and ensure she is receiving a supportive educational environment for her needs. The right family for Mimi will have patience and a great understanding of her needs and have lots of love to give and receive.
