The placement must be open to continued contact with her brother and grandmother. She needs a family who will always build on the positives and give her praise and positive reinforcement. Tanya needs structure, a consistent routine, and unconditional support and encouragement. Tanya would thrive with a family that will celebrate her accomplishments.
