Duska is a beautiful 16-year-old girl who also goes by Caitlin; she requests that whichever you use the first time is what you continue to call her otherwise it “gets confusing”. We call her Caitlin! Caitlin is described as “silly, funny, and goofy” and “sweet and kind”. Her current Adoption Specialist states that she “has a special place in my heart”.
Caitlin is a social butterfly who enjoys engaging with other people. She’s also independent and loves to step back and enjoy some quiet time. In her “me-time”, she listens to music often as she finds music to be her escape from day to day stressors of life. Some of her favorite genres include Hip-Hop, Rap, and R&B. Caitlin has always been incredibly creative and she is able to make artwork in all forms – including jewelry, pottery, sculpting, drawing, and coloring. She would love to have the opportunity to learn more about sketching techniques and would do really well taking art classes, or even beginning art therapy.
In her spare time, Caitlin will also exercise her brain and enjoys completing cross-word puzzles, word searches, and enjoys reading a variety of books. Caitlin’s favorite school subjects are history and science and she is doing very well in her academics. She is currently working towards obtaining her Learner’s Permit/Driver’s License and is very excited to have a part of normalcy back in her life. Caitlin is interested in becoming an Automotive Mechanic, though she is unsure of which college, university, or trade school she’d like to attend.
Caitlin is an all-around girly girl who also loves comfort. While she loves a good skirt and cute top combination, she’s perfectly comfortable in a graphic tee shirt/hoodie and leggings or biker shorts. She loves makeup, perfumes, quality lotions, and hair-care products. She loves to pamper herself by getting her hair, nails, and lashes done, enjoys shopping trips, and would never say no to a luxurious spa day!
Caitlin would especially do well in a home where she is the only child, however she does enjoy the company of other people. Her Adoption Specialist has noted that the type of family doesn’t necessarily matter in regards to same sex or heterosexual couples, however does note that it would be extremely beneficial for Caitlin to see what a healthy functioning relationship between a male and a female looks like. She requires a lot of reassurance and encouragement in her personal growth. Caitlin has come a very long way despite the hand she has been dealt in life and continues to work towards becoming a better version of herself. She has shown tremendous growth and will need an adoptive family that is willing to help pick her up if she falls. Caitlin needs a family that is willing and able to show her just how much she is truly worth through their unconditional love.
