Meet Shelby

Shelby is a fun girl who loves to joke around! She likes to set goals for herself and works hard to achieve them; she’s always working to improve herself at home and at school. She’s a fan of sports and if you ask her which one’s the best she’ll tell you right away: basketball! Really she likes anything that lets her stay active so she’s done gymnastics, likes to swim in the pool, or just watch YouTube and practice the dance moves she sees! Shelby’s favorite things to do are hanging out with her friends and getting to talk about what’s going on in their lives. She forms tight bonds and the people she cares about are the most important thing to her.

Shelby would do well in either a one-parent home with support or a two-parent home. She would prefer that at least one of the parents is female, and would do best with no other children so she gets plenty of attention. She will thrive in a home with routine, structure, and consistent rules that don’t change on a day to day basis. She can take some time to warm up to people so parents who can show lots of patience are ideal. Interested families should understand the impact trauma can have on children.
