15  years


Aliya is very smart and does well in school. She has recently developed an interest in photography. Aliya also enjoys music, reading and writing; she has plans to write a book and direct a movie. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and stand up for herself, which sometimes causes her to get into trouble. Aliya will need a strong family to help redirect her and keep her focused on her future goals. Aliya can be a silly and giggly teenager. She likes being social with her peers and doing activities in the community.

Aliya needs an adoptive family that understands the impact of various traumas and how to address trauma related behaviors. Her adoptive family should be willing to advocate and access services when needed. Aliya would do best with a family that provides structure, has patients and above all offers unconditional commitment. Her adoptive family should be willing to continue to bring out and build on her strengths.
