The best way to get to know Milina is to let her speak for herself. There are a few key things she’d love for potential adoptive families to know:
“I like reading, walking dogs, doing fun things like [going to] the science fair, the zoo, etc.”
Milina continued on, describing what is important to her, both now and in the future. She wants families to know that she works really hard in school and really wants to attend college. Her current goal is to become an anesthesiologist! Milina is currently a sophomore in high school who works diligently and devotedly to keep her grades up. She currently plays volleyball in school and is very interested in adding another sport to her roster – Martial Arts classes are of particular interest these days. She is a kid who enjoys being as involved as possible in school and with her extracurriculars.
Outgoing and joyful, Milina is very future-focused and motivated. Described by those who know her as the “bright light in the room,” Milina is a respectful teenager who is funny, smart, kind, and a very hard-worker. As aforementioned, school is important to Milina and she would really like to be a part of a family who is excited to support her educational goals.
Milina, committed to living an active and healthy lifestyle, is vegan. While she would love for her adoptive family to share her enthusiasm for the active, vegan way of life, just being supportive of her beliefs and choices would be just fine with her. She has recently become fascinated with cooking and has been having a blast honing in on her culinary skills. An adoptive family who enjoys cooking, especially together, would be a great fit for Milina.
Milina is described as a “delightful and engaging girl” who is really ready to meet her adoptive family. Milina is not shy about what she’s looking for, either. She has stated that she would love to have a single-parent family or two parents, and that a same-sex couple would be “awesome.” An active family is important to Milina since she is such a superstar athlete. A nurturing and supportive home environment where Milina can continue to learn and grow into a patient and understanding person would be ideal. Structure, routine, guidance, and love are a few of the qualities that would have a positive influence on her. Milina is open to attending church and having siblings. Most importantly, a family who can communicate effectively while talking through issues and misunderstandings in a respectful and kind way is very important to this thoughtful teen.
