Meet Jessa, a bubbly and cheerful little one looking for her forever family! She is fun and friendly and sure to bring so much joy to the family she joins! She is 3 years old, soon to be 4.

Her file is designated by the CCCWA as LID only at this time, so a family must have a dossier logged in at the CCCWA in order to review her referral.

Her list of needs might sound long but upon meeting her all you’ll see is her sweet spirit and adorable personality! The team who visited her said that they watched her play with a rattle, hold a ring and that she always seemed like she wanted to be in on the action, whether it was watching the other kids play, squirming to join the group, and she would light up when she got your attention. Marie can use her fingers to grasp toys, play with her feet, and support a bottle. She can pass toys with her feet to her hands. She seems to adapt to strange places/people quickly, she gets excited to see those she recognizes and is quick to reach out for a hug or a cuddle!
