Her foster parent describes Sedaja as a “helpful, sweet (child who) likes to learn new things.” At home and at school, her foster parent says Sedaja is “easy to get along with, loves other children and listens well.” The foster parent goes on to add that “Sedaja’s face lights up when she experiences something new.” It’ll also light up when watching TV shows on Nickelodeon or while playing board games such as “Connect 4.” Sedaja also enjoys roller skating, dancing and being “silly” with friends. Still, Sedaja has a serious side. For instance, when she gets older, she wants to work for the FBI as a private investigator.
Sedaja displays some challenging behavior at times, but she’s receiving help to develop coping skills and is improving in her behavior. Sedaja responds best to positive reinforcements and enjoys talking openly with her foster parent. In school, Sedaja struggles in some areas and likely will need continued assistance to succeed.
Sedaja would thrive in a home with patient and experienced parents who are willing to seek out all of the services that she needs to thrive. She has stated a preference for a single-female parent and a family who has pets. Sedaja would need to be the youngest child in the home. Finally, her adoptive family will need to let Sedaja maintain contact with her siblings.
