Sahleena and Allen
Sahleena is an incredible 12-year-old young lady who is looking for her forever adoptive home. Sahleena is affectionate, lively, rambunctious, and loving, and a strong big sister to Allen, who is one year younger than her. Sahleena loves coloring, playing games, and making up adventures. She loves having fun and connecting with those around her. The ideal parents for Sahleena would be knowledgeable about trauma, and would be patient as she learns to feel safe. She does well with unconditional support and consistency, as well as routines. Sahleena is a strong self-advocate. She has an understanding of her current situation which is beyond her years, and wants a committed, stable home more than anything.
Sahleena has a strong connection with her sibling, Allen. She must maintain this connection whether that be in the same home (preferable) or frequent visitation. Sahleena wants a family with two parents who will love her. At this time, she is ready to step down to a foster/pre-adoptive home, however Allen is not quite ready. We are looking to identify a home that would commit to Sahleena and be open to conversations about Allen when he is ready to step down. Sahleena would thrive best in a two-parent household whether she is with her sibling or not, however the right single parent home would be considered as well.
