Leah is a firecracker with a true love of animals of all kinds, but a particular obsession with horses! She dreams of horseback riding, can’t get enough of the movie “Flicka” and if she had one wish it would be to own all the horses in the world! This well-rounded girl also loves comic and chapter books; many kinds of art including beading, painting, jewelry making, and spiral drawing; board games; cooking and music. Playing soccer and basketball helps her to get all her energy out in a fun way.
Leah enjoys dancing and singing, especially to country music, and P.E. is her favorite class at school. She likes going to church, playing with her friends, and baking sweet treats. Leah is hoping for a family who likes to travel and do fun family things like going to arcades and amusement parks. Though school isn’t her absolute favorite thing right now, Leah is excited about someday going to college and though she isn’t quite sure what her degree will be in, she assures us that it will have something to do with horses! Leah describes her dream day as one where “the sun is always shining, and I get to ride horses all day and eat lots of Takis!”
Leah’s Permanency Team is in search of a home studied family that consists of both a mom and a dad, with no other children in the home. Leah is working hard on processing her past trauma and on gaining healthier coping skills. A family with significant trauma knowledge and/or training will really help her to thrive as she moves forward in her life. Leah needs a family who can also value and support her ongoing relationship with her biological siblings. Leah has so much to offer a family and is truly looking forward to a fresh start where she is surrounded by all of the love and commitment she deserves. If you’ve been waiting for a horse-loving, fun, bubbly jokester to join your family, Leah may be just the girl for you!
