“I am brave. I am strong. I am pretty. I have achieved a lot of my goals,” is how Jeannie describes herself. But the foster child is hoping to one day realize her dream of being adopted. 

The 11-year-old has a caring and compassionate nature.

For example, if she had one wish it would be to contribute $500-million to the poor and to have 500,000 mansions for people and pet.

Some of her favorite activities include playing freeze tag and Skip-Bo, jumping on a trampoline, riding four-wheelers, going swimming, and playing with her American Girl dolls.

She’s a fan of chocolate, pizza, and hot wings.

She also enjoys being social.

“I like school because it’s the perfect place to learn and make friends. Our favorite subject in school is lunch,” she said with a big smile. “And then I like science, and I like choir. I can sing soprano and alto.”

She likes animals, tinkering with electronics, and dancing. 

“I think I want to be a professional dance teacher. You can just be you when you’re like doing a dance – just get your emotion out,” said Jeannie.

Sharing her emotions with a parent or parents would be huge for her.

“She desires to be loved and supported unconditionally,” explained her worker.

“The type of family I want to have is I’d like one who’s there who’d play with me. I’d like to have a family that has kids around my age,” Jeannie said.  “Loving, kind. They’re willing to make promises that they can keep. They listen.”
