Briahna is a twelve year old happy child with dark blond hair. She is outgoing, not afraid to express her opinion, loves attention, and loves to be social.
She has a robust personality, a flair for drama and a huge smile. She aspires to be an actress or singer when she grows up. She aspires to be on The Voice but is not sure what song she will sing, yet. She will be noticed in a crowd, as she is outgoing, friendly and can be silly! She would like to be “queen of the house”! Briahna loves gymnastics, dancing and is extremely intelligent with great potential academically. Briahna has an older sister and young brother who are being adopted with a separate family and she desires a family who would allow her to maintain consistent contact and visits with her siblings.
A family for Brianna would be trained and knowledgeable of children who have experienced trauma. They would be giving, guiding, and coaching the children on positive ways and benefits of making and achieving good choices and goals. The family would believe in rewarding good behavior and established consequences for undesired behavior. They would understand the stability of practicing positive parenting skills that include setting limitations, establishing boundaries and maintaining flexibility to adapt should circumstances arise. The family would be willing to accept the wonderful qualities and cohesiveness of the bond that Briahna has with her siblings.
