Artistic teen who loves to createJerika "Leona" (9255)
Jerika (who prefers to go by Leona) has tons of artistic talent! She loves spending the day drawing, painting…anything that lets her be creative and make something that is fully her own. She does great in school, particularly math — she enjoys how all the numbers work together to create something that wasn’t there before. Leona really enjoys family time, especially when the family all sits down together to watch a movie and share some popcorn! She likes spending time on YouTube checking out all sorts of neat cooking tutorials — and then Leona will try to make those dishes herself, and we’ve got to say, she’s getting pretty good in the kitchen! She’s become very interested in vegetarian foods and takes great pride in cooking up delicious meals that don’t involve any meat!
Leona would do well in either a one-parent or two-parent home. She would prefer at least one parent to be a woman, and would love a forever family that came with brothers and sisters. She thrives in a structured environment with rules and expectations that don’t change day to day. Leona hopes for a family that takes an interest in her art and supports her in whatever she does. Interested families should understand the impact trauma can have on children.
