She’s a girly girl in every sense of the word. And even though we’ve highlighted her before, she’s still looking for a forever family who will fulfill her desire to feel loved. We first met Alina at Roller Kingdom in November of 2012. At the time, she was 11 years old.

“This is so cool, having this place to ourselves.”

First, management gave us some swag with light up necklaces and glasses.

Alina liked them since she says "my favorite color is pink."

And then things got rockin’ while, we well, “Moved Like Jagger.”

It was very noticeable that Alina likes to perform. While the music played in the roller rink, she often carried a tune along with the song. Alina likes to blast the music in her room and dance around as well. She takes gymnastics once a week, and would like to continue those lessons. She also knows how, and likes to ride horses, and loves all animals. In fact, Alina wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up.

She says, “Because I get to, like, help animals when they're not like feeling good and I just really like animals.”

Alina loves getting her fingernails painted, and loves all the Twilight movies.

Sarah: “Are you team Edward or team Jacob?”
Alina: “Jacob.”

Alina enjoys school. Math is her favorite subject. But, she also likes it because she has friends to play with; however, Alina hopes to be the only child in her forever family. Admittedly, saying it’s not a deal-breaker if there are other kids.

"I don't really care what family I get. I just want one,” Alina says. “Because I've been moving from house to house to house to house to house."

Her only wish for forever parents? Having a mom who is, as she describes, “kinda nice. Not so mean whenever I do one mistake. And a dad that doesn't yell so loud it'll scare me.”
