You won’t catch Gennevieve looking back. She’s a forward-thinking girl who’s always up for the next adventure. “Gennevieve is always willing to meet new people and engage in new activities,” says her worker. “Gennevieve is outgoing, funny and down to earth.” Playful, energetic, independent and intelligent are a few other adjectives used to describe Gennevieve. “She enjoys laughing with others and participating in friendly competition,” her worker says. That friendly competition could include soccer and gymnastics, two of Gennevieve’s favorite activities. She also enjoys reading, swimming, making arts and crafts and spending time with friends. When she’s asked about the qualities she wants in a future forever family, Gennevieve says she wants one who celebrates Christian holidays and enjoys spending time outdoors.
“Gennevieve enjoys helping others,” says her worker. She’s passionate, too, and takes her studies seriously. “Gennevieve excels academically and performs above grade-level,” her worker says. Math and spelling rank high on her favorite subjects. Gennevieve also receives services to help her manage her feelings, and she reacts well to redirection.
Gennevieve would do best with two patient and experienced parents who have knowledge of the impact of trauma on a child. In addition, Gennevieve would do best as the only or youngest child in her new forever family. Her new forever family must advocate for the services that will help Gennevieve thrive. Since Gennevieve has close ties with her siblings, her new family must be open to letting her maintain those relationships.
