Nicole, or "Nikki", is a cheerful and helpful 15-year-old girl. She enjoys cooking and prefers spending time with just her family rather than large get-together. Nicole enjoys have things to do and staying active. Her favorite things include country music, video games, movies, cats and other animals. Nicole's favorite musician is Michael Jackson.
Nicole enjoys most outdoor activities: riding bikes, dirt biking, riding 4-wheelers. She also enjos listening to music, swimming, watching movies and playing video games.
Nicole would especially like a mom to talk to and to learn things from. She would prefer a family with no other children, but would be okay with an older sister. Ideally, Nicole would enjoy being on a farm or in the country and to have her own pet. On a farm, she would love helping with the animals.
Nicole has experienced significant trauma in her life. Currently, she lives in a residential program that is helping her address her trauma-related behaviors. Nicole truly wants to be in a family and does not like sharing attention with younger children.
Nicole's worker is looking for a single- or two-parent family, with no younger children, that can provide consistent structure and lots of energy, keeping Nicole active. Nicole's parents should support her in the community and at school and advocate for her needs. A family that has experience with trauma-related behaviors and that is willing to attend ongoing therapy with her would be best.
