Wednesday's Child: 15-Year-Old Talaysia

(MARE) - Talaysia is a young lady of African-American descent with a great sense of humor. She loves to dance, sing, and be silly. She enjoys playing games and is a great Uno player. Talaysia requires extra support in school to help her stay focused on her work but with one-on-one support she can be successful academically. Talaysia is working hard to learn how to trust others and will benefit greatly from having a caring family that she can count on.

Legally freed for adoption, Talaysia would love to have a family to call her own and just wants to be loved. Talaysia's social worker is looking for that loving family who will provide her with the support and comfort she needs. She would benefit from being an only child in a family of any constellation. It is very important to Talaysia that she is able to preserve her connection with her aunt, who resides in North Carolina.
