Nine-year-old Loves Watching Hannah Montana
Shatora enjoys slumber parties and watching the Disney channel.
In many ways, Shatora does not differ from the typical nine-year-old, as she, like many of them, considers pizza, hamburgers and Church's chicken her favorite foods, and detests foods like asparagus. However, Shatora's experiences differ from most children her age in that she has experienced unwarranted abuse and neglect. Because of her experiences, Shatora will need a family that will help her to develop social skills that will assist her in interacting with others more appropriately. In the past, Shatora struggled with issues associated with abuse and neglect, but she is currently receiving therapy to help her to overcome those issues. The adults in Shatora's life maintain that she is making progress by leaps and bounds!
Shatora needs a family that will provide a loving, structured environment. She is better able to problem solve when the voices around her are calm and assertive. If your family possesses the patience to help Shatora reach her potential, you should not wait another moment to inquire about becoming her forever family.
