|Race:||African American/Black, Hispanic/Latino|
|Last Profile Update:||01/16/15|
Oshana, who also likes to be called 'Nene,' is a delightful, happy and engaging seventeen-year-old girl of African American and Latino decent. She enjoys music and dancing, being on a swing, listening to nursery rhymes such as "Itsy Bitsy Spider," and one on one time with people who care about her.
Resilient is a word that best describes Oshana's character. Although challenged with many medical concerns since birth, Oshana is a lovely little girl who can converse via sign language and a communication device. She recently received a specialized IPAD and is utilizing it for language learning skills. She is a hard worker who has also improved her ability to make her needs known through pictures. Oshana can stand upright, but favors "knee walking" to get around. She is aware of her surroundings and has a ready smile for people when they come to visit her. Recently she joined Girl Scouts and has been a participant on various Special Olympics teams!
Although Oshana is not yet legally freed for adoption, she is ready to live within a family setting. A family does not need a medical background or experience to consider adopting Oshana; however, effective organizational and communication skills to manage and advocate for all of her needs will be essential. Oshana loves to interact with others and a family with love and attention to spare will be a source of joy to her. A patient and loving family who can challenge her and support her growth will help her reach her full potential.
