Story: Is there a doctor in the house? There will be if Selena fulfills her dream of becoming a pediatrician or radiologist! When she isn't writing or journaling, this teen enjoys drawing and listening to music. Her affection for music is so strong that she wants to learn to play guitar. Basketball tops the list of her favorite sports. A family with cats would be okay with Selena; she likes them. Language arts is the choice subject for this smart and articulate student ... and unlike many teens, Selena actually enjoys school.
Selena benefits from counseling, which will need to continue after placement. This young woman's ideal family is a loving one who can give her a lot of positive attention, structure, support and encouragement. Her caseworker prefers a two-parent or single-mother family in which Selena can be an only child; Selena prefers to remain in the U.S. However, all family types will be considered. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services. For New Mexico children, both homestudied and non-homestudied New Mexico families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.
