Shawna is truly a ray of sunshine! This sweet, lovable teen can be pretty shy at first upon meeting new people, but quickly comes out of her shell and is so much fun to spend time with!
Shawna has many interests that she hopes her new family shares. She loves riding bikes; swimming; skateboarding; amusement parks; playing the base drum; drawing; and she will do her very best every time to beat you at a game of Uno! Shawna also has a sporty side, she enjoys playing basketball and is a huge BSU Broncos fan! Shawna tries her hardest in school and always strives to get good grades. She dreams of becoming a doctor one day, so she can help people.
Shawna needs a family who is active and loves adventure! She is looking forward to traveling, spending family vacations together, or just hanging out at home doing something fun. Shawna has a real affinity for younger kids as well as pets and loves to play with and care for them. Her Permanency Team is searching for an adoptive or guardianship family who preferably resides in the Treasure Valley area. The ideal family for Shawna will be able to support safe connections to some of her birth family members. Keeping those ties intact will allow Shawna to be able to form trusting relationships with her new family, knowing that she doesn’t have to erase her past in order to have an amazing future! Shawna will thrive in a family who can meet her where she is at developmentally and who can commit to her potentially needing to remain in their home past the age of 18.
Shawna’s positive attitude, exuberant personality and infectious laugh are sure to make her a wonderful addition to any family who is lucky enough to be chosen for her! If you can see yourself as Shawna’s Forever Family, we would love to have you inquire about her today!
