Aliyah, Age 13

Let’s talk about Aliyah! She is the sweetest girl I have ever met. She is a happy child who smiles and laughs. When she is talking to you, she gets a little nervous, so she will sometimes stumble over words. She likes to draw, be on her electronics, and play with her Legos in her free time. She likes Anime and Arts and Crafts. What she loves most about herself is she is kind to others. When she gets older, she would like to be an artist, but her biggest dream is to travel the world and try different cuisines. The first country she would like to visit is Japan. She wants to try the Kimchi Noodles. She does well in school and has made great progress this year.

When Aliyah thinks of a family, she wants to have older siblings as she would like to be the baby. She says it is important for her new family to help one another and always listen to each other. Aliyah would like a two-parent family with a mom and dad. She likes cats and would love one to be in her new home. She would like to live closer to the city and attend a school that wears uniforms. Aliyah shared she just likes the way uniforms look. She would like to be able to take walks, attend movies, and go to the arcade as a family.
