This is Samya.

She is an 11-year-old girl.

Samya is an imaginative young lady who is also engaging and clever. She is often seen with a book in her hand as reading is a favorite past time of hers. Samya also enjoys playing basketball, swimming and doing arts and crafts. She has a vision statement for her future which is, “I will show the world my creativity and I will be in a happy family.”

Samya will benefit from a family who provides a lot of structure and clear boundaries. She is still learning to accept guidance and directions from her caregivers, so she will need a family who can be patient with her and help her utilize her coping skills to be able to regulate her emotions when she is upset. Samya has a sibling she wishes to maintain contact with.

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.
