Diamond from Texas
Diamond is shy and quiet. Her reserved personality includes her enjoyment of museums, shopping, manicures, and formal dance classes. Diamond is respectful and kind. Although she is older than her brother, he tends to be the leader and will sometimes make decisions for her. Since Diamond is more quiet-natured, she doesn't seem to mind when Joseph takes the lead. Creativity with order is something that appeals to Diamond. She prefers to play with toys that are designed for younger children and will sometimes take on the demeanor of a younger child to gain attention. Following peers is a challenge for her. This is especially true when she is around younger children and she feels she has to compete for attention. During these times, she will often act out, but she is easily redirected. She is usually remorseful and bashful about her behavior and becomes a shrinking violet when confronted. Diamond requires additional assistance with her educational goals. She is a lovely child who is waiting to be showered with love and rooted in encouragement so she can grow and blossom. Diamond is ready for her forever family.
