Laken from Pennsylvania
Laken is a bubbly and energetic young girl. She loves to have fun, enjoys the outdoors, going on trips, and being active. If she does not get to expel her energy in some way, she will be bouncing off the walls in no time. Laken loves to dress up, often changing her outfits four or five times a day. She also loves to read. If given the opportunity, she will finish a book in one day and then be onto the next book. She will often read three or four books at the same time and be able to keep all the information straight. She is extremely bright and excels in school. She recently received an award for her high grades and achievement in the classroom setting. Laken had the opportunity to help with documents for the State-Wide Adoption and Foster Care Network and greatly enjoyed the experience. She wants to take this experience and become a lawyer in the near future so she is able to help others and do what she enjoys. Parental rights have not been terminated for Laken.
