Savanna isn’t just a bookworm; she’s a book beast. When other kids come home from school and sleep or eat, Savanna pulls out a book. Reading isn’t just her favorite after-school activity; it’s her favorite thing to do … period! “She reads fantasies,” says one of Savanna’s close adults. “Harry Potter, Twilight and Lord of the Rings are some of her favorites.” When she’s not reading, she’s likely writing. Savanna says writing is her favorite subject in school, and writing on her Wattpad is one of her favorite weekend activities. Savanna finds time for other activities such as participating in cross country. One of the adults close to her calls Savanna “a great artist.” On her list of favorite things, Savanna includes tacos for food, pink for color and penguins for animal. Savanna says her favorite holidays are Easter, Halloween, Fourth of July and her birthday. “I like to celebrate them with family dinners, picnics, games nights or matching PJ night,” Savanna says. When she gets older, Savanna wants to become a social worker or lawyer. She says Canada is her dream destination because “there is a library I want to visit.” Once she finds her forever family, Savanna hopes they have family dinners together and do family projects together.
“Savanna is an outgoing child who thrives on attention,” says one of her close adults. “Savanna is giving. She offers things she has made herself but also offers her time.”
“Savanna is very excited about adoption,” says one of the adults who cares about her most. “She states that she wants to know what a real family is.” Savanna would do best with one or two parents who are experience and trauma informed. Savanna needs a family who will be open to letting her explore who she is and support her no matter what. She also would do well in a home with pets.
