Could you be the right family for Tamika?
Tamika is in 4th grade and loves to learn. Her teachers praise her for her work ethic and high marks on her assignments. Some day, she hopes to be a teacher so that she can help others learn!
In addition to learning, Tamika likes to spend time with her friends playing board games, singing and watching cartoons. She also is an artist and when she needs some time away from others, you can find her drawing.
Tamika knows what having a family would mean for her, but she is also a little scared of the changes that will bring. She wants parents of her own, but she knows she will miss the friends and caregivers who she has built relationships with. She needs a permanent home and stable future, but she knows that will mean leaving her home country. The idea of siblings is really fun and exciting to her, but she also worries that they won’t like her. She wants to be loved, but she knows that being adopted comes with it’s own set of challenges.
Most of all, Tamika knows the challenges will be well worth having a family she can call her own! The right family for Tamika will need to be knowledgeable about older child adoption and the challenges — and joys — that come with welcoming an older child into your family. Could you or someone you know be the right family for Tamika?
