Meet Ola

Singing, dancing, and laughing are probably the three things Ola is best known for. For Ola, singing looks like any song, any time, anywhere. Same with dancing, though Ola also loves to practice and show off her moves while playing Just Dance and other fun games (Miley Cyrus is a stand-out favorite). One of her favorite things to do is go shopping for clothes or high heels or wigs—she clearly has a sense for fashion!

One of
Ola's future hopes is to be able to travel. She has her sights set on international destinations like London (castles, Harry Potter), Paris ("fashion") and South America ("sunny beaches"), and would also love to explore some more domestic cities and states as well. When
she's not imaging her future gallivanting, it's a good bet to find her on the couch watching a movie - including thrillers and horror movies! She loves the tension-building, jump-scares that keep you on the edge of your seat!

Currently in 8th grade,
Ola has some good
supports in place to help her get on track and stay motivated in the classroom. When she has adults around to keep her focused and on top of schoolwork and learning, she does her best. At home, Ola enjoys delving into different book series that range from Harry Potter, to Twilight, to the Hannah Swenson mysteries.

Friendly and funny,
Ola's caseworker shares that she’s easy to
get along with—one of the many things adults appreciate about her. Her worker adds that Ola is “engaged and open when you ask her questions.” When asked what her caregivers appreciate, the answer is close to everything. Just about everyone who meets Ola are big fans. She likes to build strong connections and attachments.

In a future home, Ola says she would like to find one that that accepts her for who she is, and who supports her unconditionally. Though her team is excited to hear from any families interested in learning more about Ola, they’re particularly excited about single-mom homes, where they think Ola would thrive. If you think you could be a fit with Ola, we want to hear from you!

Could you see Ola as part of your family?
