Girl, born June 1999
Arina’s paperwork will not be ready for her to be adopted until late 2014. She will need to find a family before she turns 16!
Arina is a beautiful young lady! She is on the shy side and quiet but just so eager to be with you and next to you. She loves to braid ones hair and does an incredible job! I see a hairdresser in her future! A mission team visited her school and she took to a particular team member and really attached to her and opened up. One of the other team members gave her some purple barrettes because she saw that Arina always had a purple hair scrunchie in her hair to keep it up and she hugged her with a big grin and just about in tears. She was so grateful.
When she was asked what was one thing she would like to change about herself she said her character because she trusts others too much and they always hurt her. She enjoys classical music and would like to learn how to play the piano. She enjoys sports such as ping pong, badmitten and she also enjoys art, cross-stitching and beading. If she could choose to be in a busy place or a calm and quiet place she would enjoy a little of both. She would prefer to be in the presence of friends verse alone. She is not concerned about being a follower or leader she just wants to be loved and be able to trust others. She would like to be a massage therapist when she can have a career. If she could have three wishes she would love to ride in an airplane, have a cell phone and travel. If she could visit anywhere she said she would love to go visit Paris because of the atmosphere. She has never been out of country but would love to. When asked would she like to visit America she had a big grin and said yes. If she could choose a family to stay with that had children she said she would prefer to be the middle child. She said she prefers girls in the family but younger boys are ok. Her favorite colors are purple, pink and black. She loves cats and dogs and size does not matter and her favorite animal is a parrot.
This young lady has such a tender heart and would love the opportunity to experience the love of family and be able to trust and just feel secure in order to breath. You can see this young lady longs for the touch of a mother.
