Cheyenne, nurturing with a great sense of humor, has a simple dream: she wants a place to call home and a family who will love her unconditionally. Cheyenne realizes that at 17 years old, she’s not an ideal age for adoption but she still holds out hope that someone will consider adding an older child to their family. She dreams of family holidays, traditions, and the chance to create special memories. Cheyenne is creative and thoughtful; she loves all types of music and hopes to be a photographer when she grows up, as she “always talks about capturing the beauty in humanity and nature.” She also loves to paint and write poetry, and is working hard to catch up in school. Cheyenne identifies herself as a survivor: her proudest moment is when she advocated for herself and her siblings in court.
Reading is her favorite subject at school, and Cheyenne’s care worker calls her “fun-loving and bright.” She follows rules and appreciates the smaller things in life. Her friends say she is accepting and nice, while Cheyenne believes the best thing about herself is her kindness. If she could change one thing about the world, she would diminish hatred. She hopes to be famous for helping others. Cheyenne wants her future family to know that she is still working through her past, but she is determined to heal. She dreams of a family who is accepting and appreciates open communication. Cheyenne longs for simple family dinners, game nights or just watching movies at home.
