Got a tech gadget? Isabella probably knows how it ticks.  The 14-year-old in foster care is hoping a tech-friendly family adopts her one day.

Isabella – who prefers to go by the nickname “Bella” – is interested in computers, tablets, and YouTube.

“I’m sort of a tech nerd,” said Bella.

“I have loved Minecraft ever since the day I heard of it,” she explained. “The second I started playing it, I was hooked basically.”

But she has other interests, too.

She likes music, dancing when nobody’s watching, and singing along to her favorite songs.

“Bella is very spunky and energetic. She loves to talk and loves to share her interests with people,” explained her worker. “She is just full of joy most of the time.”

Her favorite foods? Mac ‘n cheese and chocolate.

Her favorite colors? Red and black. 

Her favorite animals? Kittens!

What she wants most, though, is to be adopted.

“I would probably like a Mom – a middle-aged Mom – and maybe a Dad,” she explained.

“She would do best as maybe an only child or with siblings that are older,” said the worker.

“She looks forward to traveling with a family.  If a family knew something about technology and would be willing to spend time with her, that would be great,” the worker added.

The goal is for a forever family to adopt Bella and spend quality time with her, love her, and build her self-esteem.
