Isabel from Texas
Isabel is an engaging child who loves to listen to R & B. She loves Cardi B, Rihanna, and Chris Brown; she knows most of the lyrics and beats by heart and has a beautiful singing voice. She has aspirations to write a book about her life experiences and hopes that one day she can be involved in the music industry. Isabel is passionate about writing, singing, and her beauty routine. She also loves authentic Mexican food and is always looking to try out a new buffet location. Isabel is mature for her age and has a wealth of experience in some areas, but can also be naive and is working to develop skills so that she can be assertive in a healthy way. She is working hard to maintain the progress she has made and is hopeful to find a family who will provide her with love, patience, music, and a connection to her family. Isabel remains as active as she can and loves to take walks outside, dance, and swim. She also is passionate about her work-out routine, which is very regulating.

Isabel needs a patient, structured, and loving home with a consistent routine and careful supervision. The family will need to allow Isabel to feel safe and comfortable and encourage her personal growth and improvement. Isabel's home will need to be nurturing and understanding of the coping skills she has worked hard to develop. Isabel needs to have a balance of personal space as well as supervision. She will do well in a pro-active home that can engage her in activities inside and outside the home, as well as reinforcing healthy and safe boundaries. Isabel needs a home that can balance love with accountability. She does best with simplified instructions and benefits from concrete explanations and supportive tools. She does exceptionally well when she is provided with as much information as possible in order for her to process any changes before they happen. Isabel has expressed that she would be most comfortable in a home with one or more moms. She also needs to be in a home that is willing to maintain the positive connections Isabel has made since she has been in care.
