Age: 17 years old
Born: January 2003

Shilo values communication and honesty. She is in the 11th grade and enjoys science. Unlike most high school girls, Shilo keeps to herself, does not tolerate drama and is very forward in nature. Sometimes she does have a goofy side but Shilo doesn’t show it very often.
Shilo likes to hang out with her friends and really enjoys photography and cosmetology. She likes to read different genres of books. Her favorite books are Darkest Minds and Minders. Shilo wants to attend the University of South Florida (USF) and study dermatology but she also wants to study sociology and become a social worker to help kids with similar experiences to herself. As for music, Shilo’s favorite is country music.
Shilo loves little kids and animals and hopes her forever family will have both or either of these. She wants more than anything to be adopted but feels misunderstood by others in what she wants and is looking for. Shilo is looking for a family that will “take me for me” and not for any other reason. Shilo wants to be respected and treated as the 17-year-old person that she is. Shilo values her freedom and her friends and hopes for a forever family that will allow her these simple pleasures.
