10 years old as of 12/10/2018

Shannon is a sweet, 10-year-old girl with a contagious smile. Although timid at first, she began to open up at BMH camp, smiling more, and bonding with her volunteer. Mealtimes were her absolute favorite time of day, and she LOVES watermelon!

Shannon is nonverbal and has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, but this doesn’t stop her from walking or running with the other kids. She is very intelligent, and despite being nonverbal, she understands everything said her. During camp, her volunteer was able to teach her some sign language, such as “eat”, “more”, “all done”, and “love.” She performed these signs in the talent show and was so proud of her accomplishment! Learning these signs gave her just a small taste of what it would be like to have a language of her own.

Shannon is in desperate need of a family that will love her and continue to teach her how to communicate with others. Could you be the one to help her on this journey?
