Country girl who loves othersEmma (9108)
You’ll always be taken care of when Emma is around. She’s got a big heart, and loves hanging out with people she cares about. She’s a giving soul, and works hard to make sure her loved ones always have what they need. And if you need to laugh? She has a great sense of humor and she’ll always try to cheer you up!
Emma is intelligent and does very well in school — and has no difficulty applying herself to get what she wants. She hopes to go to college and start a successful career as a veterinarian someday. Emma’s definitely a country girl and nothing makes her happier than getting to be outside! You’re as likely to find her climbing a tree as you are gardening out there!
Emma has a strong desire for a family that won’t give up on her. Her hope is for parents who are nice, caring, and supportive. If possible, she would like to have brothers (older or younger). She would enjoy being part of a family that shares her interest in sports, especially volleyball and basketball, and her dream is to take family vacations to places like Hawaii or Jamaica.
Emma wants her new family to know that she will always treat them as she should. She is eager to have parents who give her the freedom to figure things out, while still offering clear direction on how to navigate life as she grows into young adulthood.
Emma would do well in either a two-parent home, or with a single parent who has additional supports. She needs parents who are able to effectively communicate what they expect, and can explain why rules and expectations are the way they are. Parents should be patient and committed, and willing to invest the time and energy as Emma learns to open up and trust them. It would be best if families had experience with, or at least training in, trauma-informed care. Interested families should understand the impact trauma can have on children.
