Lasha, 11, was born March 13, 1984, and is an outgoing, friendly fourth-grader who gets along with
everyone. She is sweet and kind, likes to be active and is eager to try new things. She loves to dance and would like to be on a drill team or dance team. She does well in school and enjoys Nintendo, skating and swimming.Due to abuse and neglect, Lasha has been in foster care for about three years. Weekly therapy is helping her deal with emotional and behavior problems resulting from her experiences and the loss of her family. Lasha and her three sisters and brother haven't lived together for some time, but they are attached to each other and need to stay in touch.
A two-parent black family is the first choice for Lasha. Financial assistance is available to cover some of the costs of adoption and continuing therapy for her.
