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: http://www.idahowednesdayschild.org/.
"When I think of the perfect family for me, I imagine having a mom, dad and siblings, too. I would especially like to have younger or older brothers and sisters. I would love to have a mom that would stay home. I think it is best to have a family where people respect each other for who they are. Families should show one another love, for example, by hugging one another, listening to each other, and spending quality time together. I would appreciate parents who would help me with my schoolwork.
I love sports such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, softball, and my most favorite of all is rodeo. I dream of my family coming to all of my games. I would also like it if the family would help me practice. Other things I like to do are sitting down and watching movies with my family, arts and crafts, and most of all going out horseback riding for an hour or two. I would like a family that would sit down together to eat dinner. Finally, the most important thing for me is to find the right family and be a part of my life forever."
Crystal is an outgoing girl who definitely knows what she wants. As stated above, her greatest wish is to meet the right family, one that will stay with her forever. Crystal would benefit from a family who can provide a safe and structured environment. Having a home where there are strong and consistent boundaries would also assist her in growing into her wonderful potential.
A qualified family who has knowledge of community resources, such as medication management and counseling services, would be a great match for this young lady. Crystal also currently receives educational assistance, which will be important to her continued development into adulthood. A committed couple or a dedicated single mother who would be willing to mentor Crystal through her last few formative years, as well as the rest of her life, can help this young lady achieve all of her dreams.
To find out more about Crystal call the Idaho CareLine number, 1-800-926-2588. In Idaho you can dial 2-1-1. You may be asked to provide this reference number: 30238.
