Victoria is a beautiful Caucasian & Latina 16 year old adolescent. She is able to speak a little Spanish but predominantly uses English to communicate both in writing and speaking. A family willing to help bring her culture back to the forefront would be a wonderful experience for her. Like most girls her age, she has a determined disposition and can be temperamental . . . but you will fall in love with how she can be a good listener, is caring and sensitive and can be helpful to others. Most recently Victoria has shown a great deal of insight into her sense of self and has made great strides in improving her behavior and coping skills. Victoria is a resilient and independent person who will advocate for herself and has made great strides despite significant trauma in her past. The young lady you meet today has overcome many challenges and has a lot of which to be proud.
Unlike most teens Victoria loves school and welcomes a challenge from her studies. She is so proud of her educational achievements. Victoria especially finds joy in reading and you can often find her head down in a book or her new Kindle. She loves the adventure she goes on when she gets lost in a book and she lights up when telling you how her imagination takes her away to a dreamy place.
Despite being a little worried about meeting new people and placing her trust in others, Victoria is open to any kind of family and hopes simply for a family who will accept her for who she is. She longs for a community, active with teen opportunities, where she can become involved. Being able to walk or ride a bike to the store or the girls club would make her happy and provide her with a positive outlet. She would love to have her own room and wants to have a space in the house that is all hers. Of course she vows to keep it clean! Caring for a family pet would be something Victoria would enjoy as she loves animals. She has utilized pet therapy well and enjoyed the time she spent at the animal shelter. Victoria recognizes a family who can help her with her homework in the afternoon will be a plus and a family who can assist her in managing peer conflicts will be critical to providing support to her in the community. Victoria wants so badly to be a part of a family and is anxious to meet her very own!
