Alyssa might only be 16 years old, but she is wise beyond her years. I met the teenager during a Forever Families’ filming session at a strawberry-picking farm in Central Texas. She shared with me that for a long time she wished her biological mother would be able to bring her home. But a phone call with her mom one day made her realize it was time for her to move on and embrace a new beginning. Alyssa is beautiful, kind and active in school. She gets along well with everyone. She is the co-captain of her volleyball team and loves basketball and cheerleading.
Alyssa is excited about adoption and hopes to find a forever family to call home. She hopes her adoptive family will be supportive of her dreams and help her keep in touch with her brother. Alyssa is featured in The Heart Gallery of Central Texas. Learn more about adoption by going to kxxv.com and clicking on the "Forever Families" tab.
