More About Rosa

Rosa prefers an active one parent household that lives in the metro area with no other children living in the home. She expresses that she would like to be the only child.

A family for Rosa...
Rosa needs a parent(s) who is willing to work with and love her through her ups and downs and have experience with children who have experienced a lot of trauma. The family would need to have an understanding of her mental health needs and barriers associated with this, especially around attachment. Rosa would prefer to live in the city versus a rural area. She would thrive in a small family setting that is structured. A family that is able to provide structure for Rosa would be very beneficial to her mental health and behavioral needs. Rosa has a relationship with her biological family so, it is important that Rosa’s prospective family will be supportive of her keeping in contact (maintaining her relationship) with her biological family and friends.
