Teyawna has participated in a therapeutic riding program for many years and she lights up when she talks about horses and horseback riding.

Teywana wants a mom to do girly things such as getting her nails & hair done and going shopping together. However, she is open to any kind of family as long as they are committed and will step up and give her the unconditional commitment and love she deserves.
