Elizza has experienced a difficult past of disappointment, neglect, and abuse. She is in need of a permanent family to help make new memories to replace some of the unhappy ones of her past. Elizza requires a lot of parental supervision and support to maintain positive behaviors and she would benefit from a highly structured, yet active home. Although Elizza has recently made good strides academically, she would benefit from parents who can be strong academic advocates for her. She may also need additional help from parents with school work. Elizza may likely struggle building strong and trusting attachments to adults. She will need parents who are very committed for the long term to help her bond and adjust, as well as parents who will help facilitate her current mental health treatment.
