Corie is a beautiful teen with eyes that shine! Though she can sometimes be shy and introverted when meeting new people, once she is comfortable you will quickly see that she is very intelligent, inquisitive and has a quirky sense of humor! Corie loves to play practical jokes on people! If you are on the receiving end of one of her jokes or tricks, it likely means that she trusts you and feels safe enough to let her guard down and just be herself.
A girl who can easily entertain herself, Corie loves to listen to pop music, do arts and craft projects like drawing and Origami, and to bake, especially White Chocolate Chip/Macadamia Nut cookies. She enjoys swimming, camping, and collecting rocks. Playing volleyball for fun; card games and reading or watching anything related to sci-fi or Greek Mythology round out her current interests. Corie loves animals, big or small, and hopes that her new family shares that passion with her. This caring young woman has an affinity for the elderly population and hopes to one day go on a mission trip to another country to help impoverished communities build safe housing and find sufficient water and food sources. When Corie is feeling introspective, she finds solace in writing songs about the hard times that she has gone through in her life.
Corie would ideally like to be adopted by an African American single mom or a two-mom family, however she is also open to learning more about other families who may not meet this exact criteria. It is important to Corie that her adoptive family be open to and supportive of her ongoing relationship with some of her biological family members. These relatives are cherished connections for Corie and are positive reminders of where she came from, which is so important to children as they move forward with becoming part of a new family. Caregivers who have TBRI training or strong knowledge surrounding childhood trauma, grief, and loss will go far in helping Corie continue to process her past and move into her future as a strong, healthy, and secure young woman.
This quiet, yet spunky, girl is sure to bring joy to whomever is lucky enough to be a part of her new family! If your heart is telling you that Corie may be the daughter you’ve been waiting for, we would love to hear from you today!
