|Race:||White/Caucasian, Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiian|
|Last Profile Update:||05/07/13|
Amy is a 15-year-old girl in need of an adoptive home that can embrace her unique qualities. She wants to be loved and cared for and desperately wants to belong and be accepted. She is of Hawaiian and Caucasian decent and is a Christian.
Amy has a great smile. She is friendly, loving, thoughtful, and sweet. She is funny and has a good sense of humor with a great belly laugh. Ann is outgoing and talkative and will stop to chat with anyone. She loves to read and particularly enjoyed the Twilight series, the Hunger Games, and books by Ellen Hopkins and Cassandra Clare. Amy also loves listening to music of all kinds, enjoys movies, doing art work, hanging out with friends, and going to the beach. Like many other teens, Amy enjoys getting manicures, pedicures, and make-up. Onion rings and li hing mui treats are some of her favorite foods.
Amy loves animals, little children, and the elderly. She is protective and loyal to those she cares about. She tries to make people feel better.
Amy has struggled in school and does better in a small group with 1:1 instruction, preferably in an alternative academic setting. She reads at a high school level, while she struggles in math, which is her least favorite subject.
Amy has challenges with impulse control. In the past, she lashed out before thinking and has difficulty calming down once she is upset. With the proper guidance, Amy may learn different coping strategies.
Amy would like a family who is nonjudgmental. As she has been so negatively and harshly judged all her life, she needs someone who is patient and calm, nurturing, and straight-forward. Amy does not like dishonesty. Amy also has a tendency to test for genuineness, so a family will need to be committed even during difficult times. She needs a family who will treat her with respect, while still being able to set appropriate rules and follow through with consequences for her.
Amy needs a family who will support her through present and future decisions that need to be made in her life. A family with few children that can provide extreme patience, structure, consistency, predictability, calm mannerisms, and role modeling would best meet her needs.
