Hailee wanted to sit down and talk about some of her favorite things, what makes her happy, and what she's looking for in an adoptive family.
As her social worker notes, Hailee loves a “sweet treat.” As a kid who is passionate about cooking, baking, and particularly loves to frost cupcakes, these hobbies are just indicative of her equally sweet personality. An outgoing and friendly kid, Hailee is really excited to be adopted by the right family.
Given the chance to be involved in creating her own In-Depth Profile, Hailee said ‘yes’ so that families could get to know the real her. Always asking good questions and reflecting on what’s important to her and what she’d like to share, Hailee helped create her own video and modeled some of her favorite, silly ‘fist pound’ gestures.
Hailee loves stories – movies, anime, books, tv shows, you name it. She keeps some of her favorites close on hand so she can watch them again (for movies, she particularly loves “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”). In her free time, Hailee also enjoys shopping and fashion. She’s particular about her clothing and loves to spend time searching for just the right thing. Hailee is really close to her friends and loves to spend time with them, especially when they get the chance to do something special like attend a school dance.
Currently in her junior year of high school, Hailee does well in class and enjoys being in school. She works closely with a mentor who encourages and supports her education.
Lately she has become a tireless advocate for keeping the environment clean, making a habit of picking up trash around her. She wants to make the world a better place.
Something that Hailee really appreciates is the chance to make her own choices. She does very well with caregivers who allow her to do things independently and who allow her to have the chance to make decisions on her own. Hailee is honest and a great communicator. She will speak up if she doesn’t understand something. An adoptive family who appreciates and honors Hailee’s individuality will be a great fit for her.
Besides baking and shopping, Hailee really likes to play video games and Pokémon. She also really enjoys ceramics and has taken an interest in welding after attending a career fair for school. For music, she points to Carrie Underwood as one of her favorites – particularly the song “Temporary Home.”
There are a few important relationships in Hailee’s life, including her older biological sister. An adoptive family who will support these bonds will be essential. Her social worker is only considering families in Washington State at this time.
Hailee really wants to be adopted. She likes animals and will do great in a strong and supportive family who can set boundaries, allow her to be herself, and provide her with choices and independence as well as love and care.
