Editor's Note: Window on the Clearwater has joined the Wednesday's Child network to help spread the word about children that are waiting for families to give them the loving care that they need. Each Wednesday we will profile a different child. For more information about Wednesday's Child and how you can be involved check the web site at:


Age: 14

Shelby is an animal lover through and through, which was evident when she recently visited a rescue farm. Having grown up as a country girl surrounded by animals, this spunky girl was right at home riding a horse; playing with the bunnies, pigs and a baby calf; and bottle feeding a 3-day old tiny goat.

Shelby dreams of a home on a farm or at least in the country but would be content to be in town as well, as long as her new family is adventurous and values providing her with opportunities to be involved in activities and to try new things.

Shelby describes herself as "a handful" but in a good way! She wants to ride 4-wheelers and dirt bikes and would love to learn to barrel race in a rodeo. Like most teenagers, music is important to her and she loves to listen to anything from country, to hip-hop, to heavy metal music. Shelby enjoys camping, swimming, tanning and board games and is looking forward to making new holiday traditions together with her new family.

Her favorite subjects in school are Science and Biology and she can't wait to get to the section where they get to dissect something! She one day hopes to go to college and become a veterinarian so that she can be surrounded every day by the animals she loves so much.

Shelby is a beautiful girl inside and out and has so much to offer the right family. If you feel that you can offer this resilient girl the love, acceptance and forever commitment that she deserves, please inquire today for more information about Shelby!

Auston is sweet and fun to be with. If you can provide him with structure, love, patience, and the flexibility he needs, he will treat your family with much affection and imagination. If you think you can provide the family setting Auston needs please inquire about him through his profile on
