EVA'S PROFILE

Age: Sixteen | Religion: Christian (Catholic) | Ethnicity/Race: Salvadoran/Latin American

Eva is a warm and friendly girl with a great outlook on life. She enjoys spending time with people and always engages in conversation with others. She takes great pride in her physical appearance and enjoys using her creativity in her physical presentation. Eva describes herself as a free spirit and loyal. Eva has spoken about her desire to be with a family where she can enjoy simple pleasures with them including having dinner together and watching movie “marathons”. Eva looks forward to being part of a family that she can cook with and speaks fondly about memories of eating Pupusas. This traditional Salvadoran dish is a positive food memory that makes Eva feel connected and cared for when she eats them to this day. She loves animals, particularly dogs, and would especially enjoy being with a family who shared this passion.

EVA SAYS...

“Family is like a cup of hot chocolate on a really cold day. Family is where you feel safe, secure and warm.”

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Personality Academics

Currently, in grade ten, Eva is doing well in meeting the challenges and expectations of being in high school while managing a part-time job. Eva is an intelligent girl who does well in school and would most likely do even better if she had the ongoing encouragement from a permanent family.

Eva’s dream is to be a forensic psychologist.
Special Considerations Matching Considerations

Eva is aware of her plan to be adopted and has openly advocated for her need for a forever family. In her own words, Eva wants a family where, “I can belong and be loved and have all of those things I have been wishing for in my life.” Eva is on a wait list to receive counselling and will likely benefit from having this support continue once she is with her adoptive family.

Eva requires a one- or two-parent family with a good support network. She has shared that she does not require a Spanish or Catholic family and the Agency is open to looking at families who can meet her needs that are not of the same cultural or religious background. A family should have familiarity with child development and possess patience and understanding. A family with an understanding of trauma and attachment building with older children is essential. A family should have the ability to continue to learn and work with professional services. Eva would do well with a family who enjoys doing activities together. Eva has a desire for an adoptive family within a specific region in Southern Ontario.
