Sunday's Child: Teen hopes to find an active family of her own


Jenna is 17, and wants to be part of an active family.

Meet Jenna who is 17. Jenna has graduated high school and is working and learning independent living skills. Jenna loves to read, and it is not uncommon for her to finish reading three or four sci-fi books in a week. She likes to explore with fashion, makeup and hair, and go shopping. Jenna also enjoys writing short stories in her journal.

Jenna has experienced numerous disappointments in her short life. It is felt that she will thrive in a home with attention and love. Jenna is open to all types of family composition. She’s OK with other siblings being in the home. She would like a home where the family is active, enjoys going places, loving and will not give up on her.
