Analiss does well in school and makes friends easily.  

She appears shy when you first meet her but becomes a ball of energy once she knows you.  

Analiss loves to sing all different kinds of music and loves to paint.

Analiss’s greatest wish is to be a part of a forever family. Analiss would thrive under a family that would encourage her artistic ability and love her for who she is. A family that is active and loves going places is a plus.
