Character: "Jill"

"Jill" came to us last Wednesday, and I've had a few days to evaluate her. She's a really pretty 15-year-old girl who comes to us from out of town.

In some ways, "Jill" seems to come from the same mold as "Josie". She's pretty street-smart, her parents are chemically hopeless. She's boy-crazy and seems to rate places and activities as worth going to by how many good-looking boys will be there.

On the other hand, she went to church with us, and she showed a surprising interest in the Bible and in what the preacher was saying, asking pertinent questions afterward. Based on my initial impression, I like her a lot. That's good, because it sounds like she's our first really long-term placement, and she may be with us until she ages out.

The force is strong with this one. I see a chance to do good things here.
