A natural leader and a driven person, Deshionna really takes her responsibilities seriously. She loves to be held accountable in leadership roles, like when she was an usher in her church. Deshionna took that role and ran with it, following the directions and guiding others to follow her. Deshionna really enjoys being involved in any and everything. She’s in just about every club she can find at school and likes to learn from these community experiences.
Deshionna’s passions are dance, music, and reading, especially fantasy and fiction books! She also enjoys her tablet and though she is super playful and fun, she can also chill out and watch a movie. Deshionna adores animals and extends her aforementioned leadership qualities to caring for animals – she’s a natural! An adoptive family with pets would be really special for her.
In school, Deshionna thrives on routine and is working on skill building to truly find her voice, both in and outside of the classroom. She’s a super smart kid who benefits from support and one-on-one time from her teacher and mentors. Her smaller school setting works really well for her learning style. An adoptive family who will continue to encourage and cheer on Deshionna when it comes to her schoolwork will help her continue to thrive academically. Deshionna is proud that she has made the honor roll two years in a row!
Deshionna is very sweet and empathetic and deserves an adoptive family who will be there for her throughout her life. She really appreciates one-on-one time and likes to feel loved and important. Deshionna has a few very close bonds in her life, including her best friend, her aunt, and her biological sisters. An adoptive family who will keep Deshionna’s relationships prevalent in her life will be essential.
Deshionna will do well in an adoptive family where she can be the only child, or potentially the much younger sibling of one or two older siblings that she can look up to. Deshionna is big on routine and is a true creature of habit; families who understand and can communicate clearly when it comes to changes in their lives will be the best fit for her. As Deshionna continues to learn about who she is, an adoptive family who can guide her and affirm her will really make a difference in her life. A family who is African American or who acknowledges that Deshionna’s culture is important to her and her identity will be necessary.
If you can see Deshionna in your family, please reach out! We are excited to find her the adoptive family she deserves.
