Meet Jada

Jada is a very happy and fun teen who enjoys being outdoors. She likes being out on adventures and loves getting her hair done. 
 At 14 years of age, Jada can be independent and will try to accomplish tasks by herself. She likes to explore and learn new things every day. Jada is open-minded and willing to try new things. 

 Jada is very open to being adopted and longs to be matched with her forever family. She will benefit from a forever family who will provide her love and structure. A family who will spend one-on-one time with her and share their hearts with her, as they guide her to reach her full potential in life. 
 If you think you could be Jada’s forever parents, or for another Texas child, please contact the department at 1-800-233-3405, for more information about adoption or  where you can also find a schedule of online public information meetings, where you can learn more about the foster/adoption program.
