Kendra from Texas
Kendra is a very loving child who loves to be with her sister. She loves being outside and being with others. Kendra enjoys being read to and likes arts and crafts. She has never met a stranger and loves to give hugs and kisses. Kendra has difficulty in talking/communicating with people, playing with other children, and relating to her peers. This can make her very independent in her environment and in social situations. She is an exuberant child who becomes easily distracted when there is too much environmental stimulus. Kendra will need support and assistance on a daily and regular basis at home and at school.
Kendra and Te'Asia are both very loving girls who are full of life and show an overwhelming empathy towards animals and children younger than them. Though their verbal communication skills have been limited, this has not limited their bond with each other. In fact, it appears to have strengthened it. Both girls look for each other when separated and light up when the other enters the room. Te'Asia can easily make Kendra laugh and is very eager to hear her sister giggle. Kendra is always willing and eager to be by Te'Asia's side experiencing all the new things that they are getting to learn in school and their new environment. They love to be read to, play with dolls, do hair, complete arts and crafts, and play outside. Kendra is the oldest but often looks for her sister for comfort. Kendra appears to understand what is being asked of her more than her sister and will try to help redirect her sister if Te'Asia cannot understand. Te'Asia loves to make others laugh and appears to enjoy making her sister laugh most of all. She is extremely curious of her environment and loves to explore everything around her. Together these sisters have an extraordinary amount of love for each other and those who are special enough to share in their bond. Visit us at the Heart Gallery of Central Texas.
