Maribel M.

This is Maribel.

She is a 13-year-old girl.

Meet Maribel!  Maribel is an artistic teenager who is beginning to take an interest in fashion.  She is musical and plays the clarinet in the school band.  Maribel also enjoys listening to various genres of music.  In her free time, Maribel enjoys drawing and building with Legos.  She also likes to be outside and take walks.  Maribel is helpful around the house, helping her family with various chores and trying to parent the younger children.

Maribel wants a family where she is the only child.  She would do best in a family who has a good sense of humor and patience in parenting a teenager.  A family also needs to have a good understanding of how best to parent a child with trauma behaviors.

Note: Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) has ceased offering the non-relative Adoption Only program. CYFD does continue to offer the Foster Care program. The Foster Care Program differs in that that the goal of the program is to ultimately reunite the child with their biological parent while the child is in your care for approximately a year. Should you become a Foster Parent it is also a possibility that the children that you foster may become available for adoption.
