Two Teens Love Vacationing

Emerald (left) and Jade (right) love school for both the social and academic enviroments
Emerald, 13, and Jade, 12, look forward to being part of a family who enjoys sports, board and card games, and taking family vacations. Emerald has no lack of self-esteem, as she describes herself as smart, friendly, and fun. Jade is a bit more modest, as she just describes herself as smart. When asked what their favorite restaurant is, both girls responded without hesitation that it is Taco Bell.

Like most teens her age, Emerald is quite particular about what she wears and how she looks in it. In addition to her love for fashion, Emerald likes school for the social and academic atmospheres. Neither girl has a favorite subject, as they like all of their classes.

Both girls are excited at the possiblity of having a new forever family. Emerald's ideal family would have other children, but she would like be the oldest of the group. Jade also wants other children, but had no preference regarding her placement order in the family. Emerald and Jade enjoy living in Louisiana so much that she made a special request to remain with a family within the state.
