This is Cherish W.
She is a 14-year-old girl.
Cherish is a sweet, creative young girl who likes to swim, ride her bike and play jump rope. Some of her hobbies include arts and crafts, music and dance. Cherish enjoys school where she is doing well in regular education classes. She has a likable personality and likes being around other children.
Cherish participates in weekly therapy where she is learning to trust adults, make good decision and ask for he needs to be met. This special young lady has been through a lot in her short life and will need a committed, non-reactive family who can spend lots of time with her and will provide strong supervision and structure. A two-parent family who understands and has experience working with trauma-based needs kids will be important.
