Fostering in Faith: Jozalonn

August 2019 · Fostering in Faith

Active, athletic, and sociable, 14-year-old Jozalonn enjoys any activity associated with sports, especially volleyball, basketball, softball, and swimming. Like any teen, she also likes to watch YouTube videos and play on her cell phone.

Jozalonn also performs well in school, although she struggles sometimes with math. Occasional encouragement, especially from a strong adult female, can generally keep her on track. She hopes to join the U.S. Air Force someday and become an aircraft mechanic.

The youngest of five, all of Jozalonn’s siblings have been in foster care. Two have aged out, and another will soon. As a result, she has had little contact with her biological brothers and sisters. She needs a patient family that will encourage her and help her work towards her goals. She thrives under rules that are clear and consistent.

Jozalonn would function best in a one-parent home, particularly if that parent is female. She has a big heart and loves to help, especially when it comes to caring for pets and younger children. She would be a great big sister to younger adoptive siblings. She would be happy in any family that is active and that loves to laugh.
