ROANOKE, Va. – Lorisa is the oldest child in her birth family and loves to draw, paint, and do art activities, in general. She loves comic books, video games and describes herself as a "cool nerd."

The 16-year old has recently discovered that she likes "girlie" things. Before she felt like a tomboy and would generally avoid those girlie things such as make-up, hair products and jewelry. Lorisa has a wild imagination and loves to read books on varied subject matters. She enjoys fantasy, true crime, and mysteries. She also enjoys reading to others, especially younger children.

Lorisa likes younger children, but “only when they are well-behaved.”
