This is Anjelika.
She is a 14-year-old girl.
This beautiful young lady is Anjelika.
A great reward often times requires great effort. This is a child that will need consistent and persistent redirection, dedication to follow through and a strong structured home with a balance of nurturing. Requirements for parenting this child will be 24/7 and at times exhaustive. She has the ability to attach and has formed relationships in her life, but as many of our children she will need time to form lasting, strong bonds. Like many of our children, Anjelika has been through and experienced a lot in her life. She needs a family that is deeply committed to her, even though she will test this relationship many times.
Anjelika is sweet, charismatic and intelligent. She absolutely thrives with one-on-one time and the individual attention it provides. Anjelika performs at grade level in school and enjoys this time with her peers. Although she does well with classmates, we are seeking a home with no other children in the home at this time or for months after her placement. Anjelika needs time to adjust and build relationships with her parents. Ideally, a two-parent home would be great for her, but a single mom with lots of love, energy and patience will also be considered.
Only New Mexico families are being considered at this time.
