Alajah, Age 16

Alajah is a caring, helpful, and a responsible young lady who would love to become a nurse one day. She may be shy at first, but she can be very easy to talk to once she opens up. She enjoys spending time outside, singing, and playing softball or basketball. She also likes to relax and watch movies and try new foods. Alajah wants to forgive those who have harmed her in the past and move forward into a bright and prosperous future.

Alajah would love to have an attentive family that enjoys spending time with one another. Ideally, she would love to have a mother to talk to and bond with. Alajah is used to having siblings, both biological and foster, and would do well in a family with other children but would also be okay with being the only child. She is open to many different family demographics, and long as she gets, as she puts it, “lots of family time.” Alajah adores dogs and would like to travel, so either of these would be considered a very welcomed bonus.
