Dave Courvoisier goes back to the Pumpkin Patch one more time for today's Wednesday'Child, so you can meet Zanaya again -- maybe this time she'll find a permanent home
Regular visitors to our Wednesday's Child segment will remember seeing Zenaya before...once in 2006, and again, here in early 2007 at the lied Children's Discovery Museum. 'Always curious and certainly with a mind all her own, Zenaya nonetheless was just learning to stand and walk on her own in these pictures from before.
Well, not anymore...Zenaya gets around very well, now, and her foster mom leaves the chair at home most times.
"It's easier for her to walk (picking up Zenaya and holding her)....to keep moving...um, but if we're going to be somewhere where we're going to be walking for a long time, or even just going to the mall or something, then I would use her chair, but we try not to get her dependent on it," says her Foster Mother.
You can see that although Zanaya is almost 12, she still enjoys being held.
"She'll kind of climb up you...and there's no way about getting away from a kiss if she wants one, she'll grab a hold of you and pull you down to her, but she'll usually lean in with her forehead, wanting you to kiss her on the forehead...she'll come over and sit on your lap," adds her foster mother.
Zanaya can verbally communicate her needs, she likes chocolate milk, and prefers getting out and doing things... What she most needs is a consistent loving home.
"She just needs, a lot of love and positive reinforcements," says her foster mother.
Zanaya goes to school everyday and has a definite sense of humor. If you're interested in giving Zanaya a forever home,
