Naomi, age 15
Naomi is a resilient and introspective young lady. She has a one-year-old child, who she loves and is very much committed to raising.

Naomi needs a family that will support and guide her while she is learning to be the best possible parent to her child. She would like help balancing her responsibilities of being a young mother with engaging in typical teenager experiences.
