The following information is provided by Wednesday’s Child, an organization that helps Idaho foster children find permanent homes.

Fifteen-year-old Shawna is truly a ray of sunshine. This sweet, lovable teen can be pretty shy upon first meeting new people, but she quickly comes out of her shell and is so much fun to spend time with.

Shawna has many interests that she hopes her new family shares. She loves riding bikes, swimming, skateboarding, amusement parks, playing the bass drum, drawing – and she will do her very best every time to beat you at a game of Uno.

Shawna also has a sporty side. She enjoys playing basketball and is a huge BSU Broncos fan. She tries her hardest in school and always strives to get good grades. She dreams of becoming a doctor one day so she can help people.

Shawna needs a family who is active and loves adventure. She is looking forward to traveling, spending family vacations together, or just hanging out at home doing something fun. Shawna has a real affinity for younger kids, as well as pets, and loves to play with and care for them. Her Permanency Team is searching for an adoptive or guardianship family who preferably resides in the Treasure Valley area.

Shawna’s positive attitude, exuberant personality and infectious laugh are sure to make her a wonderful addition to any family who is lucky enough to be chosen for her. If you can see yourself as Shawna’s Forever Family, inquire at
