Paige is outgoing and talkative, a 15-year-old who is eager to please and loves receiving adult attention.

Paige is in need of a patient and energetic family with experienced parents who can provide her life with structure and consistency. She would thrive with parents who ensure she receives ongoing support. She would do well as the youngest child with a single mom, two moms, or a mom and dad.

If Paige could have her own special wish, it would be to have a family who understands her.
