Teenager Hopes to Become a Nurse Practitioner

Lesha is a 14-year-old girl with a lot of personality. She enjoys school and maintains passing grades. When asked the question “What do want to be when you grow up?" the answer is a nurse practitioner, so she can help others. Like most children her age, Lesha enjoys hanging out with her peers, playing on her electronic devices, singing, dancing, and watching her favorite TV shows. Lesha also gets great pleasure out of playing softball at her school. Lesha is open to adoption and would like a family that is active, loving, kind, fun, and takes summer vacation. 

For additional information about Lesha or other children in need of adoption, call the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services at 1(225) 342-3888. If you are interested in providing a safe and stable home for a child who needs one, please call today or visit
