Alyssa is a sweet child with lots of love to give. She wants for a forever home and foster parents that love her, and would like a potential adoptive families to know that she is excited about finding a forever family. She thinks all children deserve a home to call their own and a family who never gives up on them.
Alyssa is open to many different kinds of families and living situations. Her team feels it is best if she is the only child in the home. This kind of family set up gives Alyssa the best opportunity to reach her fullest potential and sets her up for success. Where ever the home is, it will hopefully be quiet, according to Alyssa.
Her favorite hobby is to read. Alyssa can read all day everyday if you would let her. She is an energetic girl that loves playing dress up and putting on makeup. Anything girly, Alyssa is into it. She loves playing with her dolls and all of her stuffed animals, which she has named.
Alyssa loves to please others and has sad moments when she feels she has not done what was asked of her.
She is a quiet child and would rather be alone than in a crowd full of people. She is a good student, but can struggle in the classroom full of children. Alyssa’s teacher generally places her in another classroom for one on one time with the teacher. Alyssa feels more comfortable in this surrounding.
