Sunday’s Child is Cheyenne, 12

Hi! My name is Cheyenne.

I might like to become an undercover police officer when I get older.

Cheyenne is 12 and enjoys country music, arts and crafts, and criminal justice television shows.

She likes all types of animals and is fond of the pet dog in her foster home, which she walks before and after school. She also has gone to a horse farm and enjoyed riding and caring for the horses.

At school, Cheyenne receives special education services to help with academic delays. Her conduct is generally good; she needs some time to warm up before she is ready to engage with people. She has a mild medical issue that is controlled.


Cheyenne is eager to find a family with a mom and a dad. Her social worker believes Cheyenne would do best as the only or youngest child, perhaps in a home with an older couple who have raised daughters who are college-age or out of the house. Cheyenne’s adoptive family should ensure that she maintains connections with her grandmother and younger sister.
