BOSTON (MARE) - Berniece is a kind, well-spoken young lady of African American descent. Those who know her best describe Berniece as a caring and pleasant child that always has a large smile on her face. She enjoys camping and spending time outdoors. Berniece enjoys school and has even joined her school community's LGBTQ group. She is able to maintain close relationships and get along with her peers and siblings.

Legally freed for adoption, Berniece would do well in a patient, loving family of any constellation, with or without other children in the home. Berniece shares a relationship with her birth father, who she currently has monthly supervised visits with, which must continue after placement.
