Erika from Pennsylvania
Erika is a spunky, vibrant and caring young lady who enjoys engaging with her peers and being a typical teenager. While she is very outgoing, she also enjoys taking time alone and values her quiet time. Some things that she enjoys doing include making origami, doing crafts, dancing, and basketball. She has so many talents! Erika is pretty easygoing and laidback, but does not hesitate to advocate for her wants and needs. She has two younger sisters and is a natural born leader. She knows how to rally others behind her. She is also very good at playing chess, which speaks to her ability to problem solve and think through conflict. Erika does very well and thrives with routines as they help her maintain structure in her life. She is very strong-willed, independent, and smart. Erika does well with animals and enjoys interacting with them. Erika could thrive in an adoptive home where she is the only child, as she craves individual attention. Erika is very connected to her biological sisters and visits with them on a monthly basis in southeastern Pennsylvania. It is very important to her to maintain contact with them after she is placed in a permanent home, therefore a family who can maintain this level of contact is preferred. Erika is legally free for adoption.
