Fifteen-year-old Skye is a typical teenage girl. She loves shopping and enjoys getting her hair, make-up, and nails done. Skye currently resides in a group home and attends public school. She would love the opportunity to participate in extracurricular actives with her friends, including school dances.

Skye has made great strides in the past year. She has worked hard to meet personal goals and has overcome many obstacles. Skye is a great self-advocate and if there is something she wants, she is not afraid to go after it. Currently what she wants is a family and is working hard with her adoption team to find the right fit.

Of French, Russian, and German decent, Skye is legally free for adoption. She has an open adoption agreement in place for two visits per year with her birth father and would like a family that can support that relationship in a healthy way. Skye is open to any family structure. She would do best in a family that is able to set firm, yet flexible, limitations and rules.
