Lavender is bright and charming, pleasant towards others, with a good sense of humor. She enjoys going to movies, participating in teen group activities, likes to swim and workout at the gym. Academically she has been struggling and needs to be encouraged to focus. The turmoil in her life is clearly reflected in her level of academic performance. Lavender wants to be part of a family and achieve permanency in her life. She aspires to become either a lawyer or registered nurse someday and wants to help others. Could you be the right adoptive family for this child?
