Meet Mariah

Mariah is a very active 16 year old. She was born February 13, 2001. She was a preemie and decided at 34 weeks she was ready to meet the world. After a stint in the NICU that scared us all, she came home and was eager to take on the world. She was a good baby and loved meeting people, seeing her surroundings, eating (she STILL loves eating) and sleeping (funny, she still loves that too).

Mariah enjoys hanging out with her friends. She keeps a very busy schedule between work, her high school sports games (as a dedicated fan) and her friends/social life. She very much a socialite and has to have constant connection with her friends. She loves the constant busy schedule. She’s was in Cross Country, Track, Volleyball and Basketball during middle school, and Basketball during high school. She is an honor roll student and still attended summer school for the sports program. She’s loved by every teacher that has had her as a student.

Mariah also played the drums. She played four years and then gave up playing during high school. She played at a much higher level then other kids her age. She hears the music and she plays it. For two years in a row she was in the city’s honors band which was an amazing milestone. Of all the middle schools in the city (we have 6 middle schools that each have at least 1,500 children) there were only 10 from each grade and each school that were chosen. This was a huge deal for her and she was so very proud. So were we!

Mariah also took 5 years of Spanish! This is an interesting fact about her. She understands a lot of it, but doesn’t communicate it back as well. That’s okay, it’s not her primary language and we are very proud of her for trying. It wasn’t easy for her and she gave it her all. In the end she decided to focus her studies on another path, one that she sees herself going in to the field some day.

Now in her high school years as a Junior, Mariah is taking many college classes. She will continue her Senior year taking college classes (she only needs one credit her senior year!). She’s done so well her high school career and we couldn’t be happier with her progress. She has goals and she has worked hard to obtain them!

Mariah is compassionate, friendly, caring and loving. She’s very much a mother hen. She loves to help out with anything she can. She enjoys scrapbooking, but only with me. She loves all things that teens love: music, friends, crafts, sports, technology and of course her car and driving!

She’s the apple of her daddy’s eye and she has him wrapped so very tightly around her finger! She’s mom’s right hand and will always be special for so many reasons!
