This adorable 5-year-old girl is waiting in Latin America for a family. She enjoys roaming in the house or yard—you can find her smiling as she plays on a short slide, hugs her baby dolls, or grabs a bite of her snack as she walks about.
Y attends a local school for children with special needs and enjoys it—when she returns home, she will share her experience with her caregivers through gestures and sounds. She receives speech and physical therapy and has shown growth and development as a result.
She had the opportunity to take part in one of Tim Tebow’s Night to Shine events. You can see a clip of her proudly wearing a sparkly crown while kissing his cheek at the end of the foundation’s video. You can also see photos of Y with Tim Tebow on his Instagram page.
