Martha is a 11-year-old girl from Texas who is hoping to be adopted.
Martha is a very sweet and loving child who has a pleasant disposition. She is shy and reserved, especially when meeting new people or with people who do not speak Spanish. Martha gets along well with others and is very cooperative. She is very polite, respectful and has no problems with adhering to instructions from adults or authority figures. Martha enjoys school and strives to do her best academically. She enjoys listening to music and watching television and lists Spanish music and soap operas as her favorites. She enjoys playing soccer, basketball, baseball and video games. Martha likes to swim and enjoys going to the park. She finds a lot of joy in going on family outings such as shopping, skating, bowling, movies and out to eat. Martha likes to watch Spanish soap operas as training for her dream career as an actress.
Anahi, Pedro and Martha are adventurous. Their personalities add all the spice for a zesty life. These three enjoy family fun such as team sports, cooking, swimming and eating. They are deeply rooted in their Hispanic culture. The children enjoy listening to Latino music and watching Spanish soap operas. Anahi, Pedro and Martha love each other and get along very well. Anahi is the oldest sibling and at times still acts as a nurturing caregiver. Pedro, as the only brother in the group, tries to be the protector and is thoughtful of his sisters. Martha is the baby and takes that job seriously. She enjoys being carefree and cooperative with her older siblings. All of the children enjoy participating in outdoor activities and maintain an active lifestyle. The children enjoy the language, food, music, and traditions that are tied to their culture. Spanish is their first language but they all have made great improvement in speaking, understanding, reading and writing English. ESL classes would be beneficial to the children.

A family that consists of a mother and father or single mother will be best suited for Martha. A family that is bi-lingual will be a plus, but is not required, as Spanish is her first language, and she tends to speak both English and Spanish, especially when interacting with her siblings. Martha is fine with a family that that lives in the city or country, and states she does not really have a preference, she just wants a family that "will love and take care of them". She would like a family that has animals or an interest in animals, especially horses and cats. Martha will require a family that can provide structure and support to address her emotional needs. She will need frequent reassurance of safety and security as she often has trouble sleeping at night. Martha states she prefers a family where she and her two siblings will be the only children in the home, but she would be okay with other children in the home if this is not possible.
