Marissa, age 5,  is a sweet, loving and fun little girl.  She is a happy and curious child that loves to laugh.  Marissa is able to express her likes and dislikes and reaches for things she wants.  Marissa is working on building her vowel and consonant sounds as well as her sign language vocabulary.  Marissa can be slow to warm up to unfamiliar faces, but once she gets used to someone, she will smile and sometimes vocalize her happiness!  An adoptive family for Marissa will need to be available to ensure Marissa’s medical and developmental needs are met.  Marissa’s beautiful smile and spunky attitude is sure to melt the heart of her future forever family!
