Profiles

Alaysa

Age: 11

My name is Alaysa. It's pronounced A-lay-sha, but my friends call me Aly. I love to dance and sing, swim, play basketball and tennis and roller blade. I like Wahooz, especially the bumper boats and go-carts. I like art and all kinds of music. I'm good in Math and Science in school. I'm learning about life cycles of insects. I might like to be a teacher someday.



Faith

Age: 13

Hi, my name is Faith. I like to ride horses and I love animals. I've had dogs and cats at home. I love to cuddle with a cat and tease it with a fake mouse. I like to watch it pounce! My favorite foods are chicken strips and curly fries. Oh, and I like slushies and smoothies. I like to dress up, and I also like comfortable clothes that are cute. My favorite colors are pink, blue, yellow and lime green. I like being feminine, having my hair done, painting my nails, having pedicures and shopping. I would enjoy doing these things with just a mom. If she got married later, that would be OK, as long as I have plenty of time to be sure her choice of husband is someone I can trust and feel safe with.



Rogelia

Age: 16

My name's Rogelia, but my friends call me "RJ." I like to listen to music, go out and do fun things, dance (especially hip-hop), and watch TV. My favorite subjects in school are drama, choir, and English. After high school, I'd like to attend college.

When people ask what I want out of life, I tell them I just want to be happy. I want a family with siblings, pets, a mom, and parents that are ok with me visiting and having a relationship with my biological family and previous guardians.



Jacklyn

Age: 16

Hey, I'm Jacklyn. I love animals; cats, dogs, all kinds of animals. I have kind of a gift. Mostly they love me--except I stay away from the ones that want to attack.

If you were to ask my best friend to describe me, she would tell you 'She's my BFF and we're actually like twins. We're both picky eaters, we both like animals, we both love to play video games, we're both not all the way mature yet because we like to pretend we're animals.' (laughter)



Krista

Age: 15

My name is Krista. I want to live in the country. I used to live on a ranch and I really liked living there. I love horses and I'm not afraid to get dirty. I also like girly things. I like to do hair, paint nails and go shopping. I love to do all kinds of crafts. I really like school. I am good in math and science and want to be a cardiac specialist one day.



Alexandria

Age: 10

Alexandria's adoption team has seen her through good times as well as disappointments in the past few years. They know she needs to be near her brother in southwest Idaho and that will be a priority in selecting an adoptive family. If you are experienced with trauma- based family work and accessing professional resources, you may be the parent this child needs.
