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/.
Profile and portrait provided by A Family For Every Child.
Hannah's smile is contagious and her presence brightens any room. She is tall and thin with blond hair that she loves to have styled. Hannah is very healthy and is determined to stay that way; she enjoys eating healthy and being active.
Hannah loves to eat! Her favorite foods are anything sweet especially soda pop and candy. She also loves to be active; she takes pride in her ability to swim and describes herself as a fast runner and as ''the best tether ball player in her class''. She is very artistic and enjoys giving her art work as gifts. She loves animals and would love to have a cat of her own.
Hannah has a dedicated relationship with her older sister who is 19 years old. Hannah's older sister loves her very much and often takes her on outings on the weekends or visits her at the foster home in the evenings. Hannah needs to have ongoing and regular contact with her sister. Hannah is also bonded with her adoptive mother and ongoing supervised contact with her would likely be a positive thing in her life. Hannah would also benefit from continued contact with her current foster parents, as she has lived with them for a significant amount of time and everyone feels that she is an important part of the family.
Hannah would like a family that loves her and that serves delicious food at mealtimes. She would love to have her own room and wants to be able to paint it any color she wants. She enjoys being on farms and playing outside but also enjoys having close neighbors and a place to ride her bike. Hannah is an amazing child who will be a shining star in her new family! She adds character and a little excitement to the most mundane activities and will make a wonderful addition to the right family.
Hannah needs a family who is open and willing to help her maintain her important relationships with her sister, mother, and her current foster parents. She also needs a family who can give her special attention with her school work and a family who can set appropriate boundaries.
Hannah needs a family who will embrace her active lifestyle, who will help her style her hair, paint her fingernails, let her try on pretty dresses, and will love her unconditionally. Hannah is an easy child to love, she just needs someone to step forward with outstretched arms and embrace her as part of her new forever family!
Hannah is available for adoption through the State of Oregon. To find out more about adoption or becoming a foster parent, email the Idaho CareLine or call 1-800-926-2588. In Idaho you can dial 2-1-1.
