Twyla is a spirited 12 year-old (turning 13 in Oct 2013) girl who is chatty and sociable. She is very adaptable and adjusts well to changes. Twyla enjoys playing on the computer, reading novels and doing handicraft work. She is now learning to do cross-stitch.
Twyla is intelligent and bright and recently completed her primary school education. She will start junior high school in September 2013. Twyla has an inclination towards learning languages but also enjoys mathematics. Twyla’s dream is to enter college.
Twyla was in foster care from 2004 and stayed with a wonderful foster family. Her foster family provided her with very good support and care during her growing years. However due to her foster mother’s deteriorating heart condition, the family is no longer able to provide full-time foster care and Twyla was returned to the institution recently. The family still maintains weekend contact with Twyla and continues to help her in her adjustment.
Twyla has expressed that she would really like to have a family of her own that is permanent, she would like to be adopted and can be provided with good preparation for adoption.
