Every one of the children on the Heart Gallery is unique and special in their own way. But if we’re being totally honest, some kiddos’ circumstances endear them to us just a little more. Our dear friend Avery falls into that group, but in the best way. Avery was born with a number of physical and developmental issues, but she has beaten all the odds to become the wonderful, resilient, happy young woman we all know and love today. She uses a wheelchair and doesn’t talk, but that does not mean she isn’t expressive. She very clearly responds to voices, touch, songs, and lights – her eyes absolutely beam and her smile just fills the room. You definitely know when she is happy! She receives several different kinds of therapies in her specialized placement and loves participating to the fullest…almost as much as she loves sleeping! Avery is a medically fragile child who will require these therapies and specialized care for the rest of her life, so her forever family will need to be as unique as she is. If you are committed to working with her team to love, support, and push her to reach her full potential, you won’t have to look far to find the reward for the effort – You just have to look into those beautiful eyes and see that smile of hers as she looks back at you, full of love. Love for her family. If you’d like to learn more about Avery, please let us know.
