Family Description

I am a successful, single professional living with my dog in Old Town Alexandria; a safe, historic, scenic area walkable to coffee shops, ice cream stores, restaurants, boutiques, consignment shops, and nail and hair salons. I love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, biking, and paddleboarding. As much as I enjoy being active, I am a champion lounger; movie night and reading a book are some of my favorite activities. I have tight-knit relationships with my neighbors, a culturally diverse and welcoming group that I can rely on and depend on as they trust and depend on me. I have time to dedicate to a child and am ready to welcome them into my home, accept them as they are and help them grow healthily and happily into adulthood and beyond.

Preference Description

I am looking to adopting a child between the ages of 12-16 years old, of any ethnic background. I'm willing to accept minor medical conditions, such as a child with PTSD, attachment or learning challenges, and developmental delays.
