Florinda from Texas
Florinda likes to be called by her nickname, Nina. She is a sweet teen girl who is always looking out for others. Nina enjoys playing outdoors, especially with younger children. Nina also loves to color in her many coloring books and can strike up a conversation with anyone. She also has fun fishing and going for walks. Nina likes arts and crafts and drawing. Nina is growing into a lovely teenage girl and has developed new interests such as doing her hair, nails, and makeup. Nina also loves to dress up and likes to show off her pageant dresses and pep squad uniform. She enjoys the interactions she has with other children and adults at school and benefits from receiving assistance in her academics. Nina can be sensitive at times, but has also learned to speak up for herself and those around her.
Nina will do well in a one or two parent household, but she has been clear she would like to have at least one mother present. However, Nina would also be delighted to have a father-figure in her life. A family with clear and consistent expectations and a mostly structured routine will be best for her. Nina also needs a family who will allow her to maintain contact with her siblings throughout their lives whether it be through the telephone, video chatting or social media.
