She isn’t a professional artist, but Sativa still takes a big interest in her creativity. She loves drawing, knitting and crocheting. Someday, Sativa wants to travel to Tokyo to shop at its 2.7-million-square-foot mall. While she’s there, she’d likely visit one of the city’s seafood restaurants since sushi is Sativa’s favorite food. Sativa says she loves food and enjoys cooking it as much as eating it. “She wants to learn how to make more foods,” says her worker. Sativa also wants to travel to Florida to visit Disney World. When she gets back home, Sativa might settle into her comfort zone of reading and listening to music. “She likes many different genres including rock, metal, pop and country,” her worker says. Sativa stays active by swimming, going to the park and exploring. “She loves nature,” says her worker, who adds that Sativa’s favorite animals are horses and dogs. When she’s ready for quieter times, Sativa likes playing board games, especially “Quelf” and “Scrabble.” When she gets older, Sativa wants to work in forensics.
When Sativa first meets people, she can seem uneasy. “She has the ability to warm up to new people quickly but takes time getting to know and trust them,” says Sativa’s worker. She receives services to help her develop coping skills to manage her emotions regarding the trauma she experienced. She generally does well in school and receives assistance to help her progress. Sativa’s favorite subjects are science, English and history.
Sativa would do best with a mom and a dad and a family in which she is the only or youngest child. Her new parents would benefit from knowledge of the impact of trauma on a child’s behavior and development. Sativa’s new forever family must be strong advocates for the services that will help her thrive. Her family must be willing to let Sativa maintain contact with her older siblings. Finally, because she loves animals, Sativa wants a family who has pets.
