Maleah has been waiting for a family to call her own for far too long. Our staff spent time with her last February, and we have been working hard to find the perfect family for her since.
The day we met her, she walked in with her head held high, displaying the perfect ‘this is lame’ teen strut. She was trying her best to let us know this meeting was boring, and she’d rather be doing a million other things. But she slipped up when she briefly made eye contact with both of us, letting down her tough teen façade just for a moment, and giving us our first glimpse into the amazing young woman that she is. She knew why we were there, and it wasn’t hard to see her vulnerability behind the valiant attempt of only giving off teen ‘tude.
