When you spend time with Gabby and Paige you are sure to laugh.
“Paige and Gabby are always laughing together. They are true sisters. They bicker and steal each other’s shoes and clothes, but they are also super protective of one another and will have each other’s backs,” shares their Child-Specific Recruiter, Hayley.
Gabby (17) and Paige (15) are both typical teen girls. They love to jam out to R&B, talk with friends, and go shopping. “They also love to get their hair and nails done. When we meet, I will take the girls to get their nails painted and get a special drink from Starbucks. This summer it was pink and blue ombre nails and a passion fruit drink to match!” says Hayley.
Both girls love to work with kids. Gabby would like to be a preschool teacher when she grows up. Paige currently helps out with kids in her school who have lower-functioning autism and has told Hayley, “This isn’t going to be the last time I do this.”
Not surprisingly, the sisters would love to join an adoptive family with kids. They also need a family with a sense of humor and the ability to trust them with their own independence. They could be trusted to stay home by themselves and want support in their choices, but their parent(s) will need to teach them about how to safely navigate boundaries and relationships. Though 17, Gabby would probably do best if she were able to live with her adoptive family while working and learning how to grow independently over the next couple of years. They have biological family in the Twin Cities and would like to stay in the area. Their adoptive family should support those connections.
