Evelyn: 30 Days of Hope

She loves animals and loves to be active

ROANOKE – Evelyn is a charismatic young lady with a sweet and caring nature. The 13-year-old loves animals and loves to be active. Evelyn’s favorite activities are swimming and bike riding; however, she is artistic and enjoys drawing and coloring. She participated in a modern dance recital in May 2015. Evelyn is on level in school and has participated in extracurricular activities after school and on summer breaks.

The best placement for Evelyn is one in which her two biological brothers can live with her. She has stated she would like a family who enjoys dancing, walking in the park, going to the movies, going bowling and trips to the spa. Evelyn would thrive in a family where she can receive one-on-one attention.
