Ascenda is a very intelligent young lady who enjoys life. She has a beautiful smile that lights up the room she’s in. This outgoing and charismatic girl enjoys a range of activities such as dancing, playing basketball and going shopping. Ascenda also likes tumbling and participating in gymnastics. Ascenda has a creative side to her personality and loves to draw people, animals, flowers and trees. Ascenda is looking for a forever family, one who’ll provide a safe and stable home environment.
Ascenda would benefit from either a single-female or a two-parent household in which she is the only or youngest child. Her new parent or parents would benefit from knowledge of the impact of trauma on a child’s behavior and development. In addition, Ascenda would do best in a highly structured home with experienced parents who set clear expectations and consequences. The family will need to be patient and flexible, and they should be strong advocates for the services Ascenda requires to do her best at home and in school.
