Maybe someone older

I don't know why, but since the beginning of my search for a child I have been drawn to the girls who are around 12 years olds. Cris had orginally wanted a younger child but as soon as I showed him Gabbrilla, he was instantly interested.. She is not a young child...she is 12! Here is her profile

Gabbrilla is an attractive and spirited young lady with aspirations of becoming a teacher or doctor when she grows up. She is likable, polite, helpful, and has an outgoing personality. She desires constant interaction with others and offers lots of advice. She does well academically and performs at grade level in school. Her favorite subject is spelling and she looks forward to recess time as well. Favorite pastime activities include watching Dukes of Hazard, Dr. Quinn, and The Waltons with her foster parents. She also enjoys roller skating, drawing, and wants to learn to cook.

Gabbrilla has a strong desire for a family and is flexible about what her ideal family might be like. Her wishes are to have a female sibling close in age and a puppy, but she is not locked into those ideas. Gabbrilla is very impressionable and needs the love and guidance of a strong single- or two-parent family. She desires to explore and maintain her cultural identity and needs a family willing to walk with her in that quest. Religion is important and she hopes to continue participation in church activities.

About the only thing is we don't have is a sibling for her. Other than that we may be a good match! This is just the first child we are interested in...so we shall see how it goes.

I have emailed our social worker to get more info.

I can't wait to learn more.

Super Excited :o)
