Carissa is the life of the party according to Lindsey. She is sweet, chatty, creative, and likes to catch you off guard with a hilarious and outlandish comment. She has a childlike sweetness, and a quick way to your heart. She is up for trying new things, and is hoping to join her high school basketball team for the first time this year. Her culture is important to her, as well as her family. She cares deeply for her sisters, and takes on a protective and nurturing role with them.
The Right Family for Carissa
A family for Lindsey and Carissa should be willing to learn how to provide a nurturing and open environment for them to explore becoming adults, while also offering consistency and structure. They need support in continuing to be active in their Native American community and culture. They are both still very involved in their biological family, and will need an adoptive family who is open to supporting them with these relationships.
