This beautiful Latina teen would love to find a family who shares her heritage and enjoys all the richness of this culture; especially the taste of Spanish cuisine. She would love a family who can speak with her in the Spanish language. Fourteen year old Noemi loves animals and envisions being the owner of a Great Dane someday.
Some of Noemi's strengths lie in her sense of style and creativity. She is a true young lady who is proud of her independent nature and ability to dress her own way. She is a typical teenager who loves to shop. She is funny, smart and a good helper at home. Noemi can be found indoors on rainy days, challenging anyone to a game of Apples to Apples. She is equally happy soaking up the sun after swimming. Noemi is a great student who excels in school.
Being the only child in a family; or the very young sibling to a much older young adult, would allow Noemi the opportunity to be the center of attention within her family. Many of the adults in Noemi's life have formally been a disappointment to her. She deserves a patient and understanding family who will support and guide her through the adolescent years. She needs time to build a trusting relationship with any potential family and they will need to understand what she has been through and help her celebrate how much she has overcome in her young life. One of the best descriptors of Noemi is "courageous."
Noemi and her family will continue to receive extra supports and training to ease the transition as a family. With stable and reliable adults in her life, Noemi will flourish. Any family will be gifted with the great joy of parenting this wonderful teen!
