Darleesia is a polite girly girl who typically responds with "yes ma'am" and "no ma'am." While she tends to be soft-spoken and shy at first, she opens up to supportive adults over time. She enjoys playing with dolls, especially Frozen and Strawberry Shortcake. She loves animals and dreams of having her own small dog or cat. She entertains herself with coloring and puzzles. And she enjoys dressing up and getting her hair and nails done. She also enjoys attending social activities and going out to eat. She likes school where her favorite subject is science. She will thrive in an educational setting where she can receive support services to help her stay on target with her peers.

Darleesia has two brothers who would not be part of this adoption, but with whom she shares a close bond. It is important that this relationship continues to be supported.

Darleesia would love to have a family to call her own NOW! She would do well in a family with our without other children with a single parent or two parents. The family will need to provide a trauma informed, loving, structured environment to further Darleesia's emotional and developmental growth. They should advocate for her educational needs, and encourage her participation in extracurricular activities.
