Gabriella is a young girl who has a sweet giggle, loves listening to music, and is always on the move. She enjoys getting to explore her environment. She was born with a rare brain disorder and as a result, is placed at a medical facility to help meet her needs. One of her biggest goals in school, and at her placement, is learning how to walk on her own. She is able to crawl freely by herself and is using a gait trainer and other special equipment to help her to learn the tricky task of walking. She is nonverbal; however, she can communicate her likes and dislikes through giggles and noises. She is thriving at her placement and has made great strides in her functional abilities.

Gabriella needs a family who is able to provide the level of medical care she requires in the home and be willing to be trained in medical care. .
She is legally free for adoption.
