She is artistic and enjoys drawing and painting in her free time. She enjoys reading romance novels and listening to music.

She cooks a meal or bakes on a weekly basis, and has memorized a recipe for monkey bread, which she likes to make for others.

Thelma has experienced a lot of disappointment in her life and needs a family that is patient and prepared to parent her through the grieving process.
