10-Year-Old Yomi Loves School and Gymnastics
Yomylianiz, who goes by the name Yomi, is an energetic girl looking for a family to adopt her.
She loves school and powered through it during the pandemic with both in-class and remote learning. Yomi really enjoys playing with her friends and is very engaging and talkative. While she can occasionally get caught up in the type of drama that goes along with social groups her age, she has the ability to work out the issues on her own.
Yomi has a big imagination, a great sense of humor and is very expressive. She is very responsible and loves to keep her room and personal space clean and organized. Fashion, art, gymnastics, and outdoor activities are a few of Yomi's favorite things to do.
Yomi tends to be quite athletic and has taken up horseback riding. She would love to continue with her gymnastics lessons in her new family. Running, basketball and dance are also some of her favorite physical activities, but Yomi also enjoys relaxing by crocheting and drawing.
The Ideal Family For Yomi
Yomi is legally freed for adoption. Her social worker believes she would benefit from a two-parent household with at least one female parent, and one younger and one older child in the home or a childless home. A single-female family will also be considered. Yomi's new family must be open to monthly or more frequent in-person visits with her brother who lives in western Massachusetts. Also, Yomi would benefit from a family that will foster her love for gymnastics and other interests while also setting clear boundaries and limits, and instilling clear communication. There is an open adoption agreement for two visits per year with her birth parents.
