Name: Haley, 12

Background: Haley is a kind, helpful, outgoing girl. She enjoys the outdoors, playing sports and collecting porcelain dolls and clay sculptures. She also likes to read novels and watch movies. Her caseworker says she is a wonderful young lady with a lot of potential.

Developmentally on target, Haley reports getting mostly average grades in school but knows she can do better. In the seventh grade, she does well socially and has a lot of friends.

Haley is doing well in her current foster home, where she has been for a year. She hopes to maintain contact with a biological older brother and extended family members, including a great-aunt.

Needed: Haley would like an active two-parent family that enjoys camping, swimming and sports activities. She would do well as the oldest of younger siblings, but her caseworker says Haley is the kind of child who would thrive in any family that embraces her.
