Landry is a beautiful girl, born in February of 2011, who is described as generous and thoughtful. Landry enjoys listening to music, playing with stuffed animals, and playing outside.
Her caregivers describe her as energetic, extroverted, and occasionally a bit obstinate. When she is unhappy, Landry’s caregivers comfort her by giving her gifts or holding her. She can speak in 5-10 word sentences and communicates well with her caregivers. However, when compared to her peers, she is said to be delayed.
Landry has been living with a foster family since March of 2011. She enjoys many types of food including steamed buns, dumplings, meat, vegetables, and fruit. She does not care for pepper. She is a deep sleeper and she shares a bed with her foster grandmother.
Landry is diagnosed as having tethered cord syndrome, Chiari malformation, and lumbosacral spinal meningocele for which she had surgery when she was only a few weeks old. She requires special shoes and she can walk when she is wearing them. Landry is not toilet trained because of her needs.
A forever family with access to good medical care is what Landry needs most!

Landry has a $1,000 agency grant for her adoption with Madison Adoption Associates. Other grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances. Agency grants are awarded as agency fee reductions. MAA also partners with the Brittany’s Hope Foundation for matching grants, which are given out twice a year (January and July) and to families that are officially matched with a child.
Landry needs a family with an approved home study to be able to move forward with adopting her. If you have an approved home study or a home study in process and are interested in adopting Landry, please fill out a free PAP Waiting Child Review Form, which can be found here.
