14-Year-Old Girl with a Great Sense of Humor Needs a Home [TUESDAY’S CHILD]
Tatiana is a 14-year-old girl with a great sense of humor. She is an active child who wants to try gymnastics and enjoys taking swimming lessons. She has recently been participating in equine therapy, which she really enjoys.
Tatiana loves putting braids in her hair or pulling her hair back in a ponytail. She also loves to paint her nails or get them done at a salon for a special treat. Other activities of interest to her are drawing, riding her bike and watching movies.
Tatiana's siblings are very important to her, so a family should be open to helping her maintain those connections. There is an open adoption agreement with her biological father, which includes only updated letters with no face-to-face contact/visits.
Tatiana will benefit from joining a loving family that can provide her with stability, structure and a dependable routine. She will do her best as an only child or with older siblings. An ideal family will be able to navigate mental health and educational systems and act as a strong advocate for Tatiana.
