Aleesha just received the exciting news that she was accepted into college! Her child-specific recruiter, and all of us at CH/LSS, are so proud of all of the work she’s done to prepare for high school graduation next month and then college. But, we’d love to find her the support of a permanent family before her college career begins.
Aleesha is a fun, outgoing, and sarcastic teen. She enjoys going out with friends and embracing her independence as a young adult. She likes working so that she can buy her own things—she was really excited to buy a new iPhone with the money she earned. She loves listening to music—especially Top 40 songs. She is very smart and street-savvy: she knows her way around the city and can be quite resourceful. She is a confident and stylish young woman who enjoys primping herself by changing her hair, nails, and makeup.
Aleesha is looking for a family that will support her in her future goals. She has experienced a lot of disappointment in her life; we are looking for a family that is prepared to support her and commit to her regardless of what happens in the future. To that end, the family must be ready to assure her that they won’t give up on her, while allowing her a lot of freedom and independence. She is looking for a safe and caring family—made up of one or two moms—that would provide stability and a place she could call home. She would like a more laid back family that has a great sense of humor. Her adoptive family should also be excited to help her navigate becoming an adult; helping teach her independent skills such as applying for jobs, starting college, or practicing driving. She would do well in a family with siblings and she would love to have pets.
