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/.
"My name is Destiny and I like to ride my bike, play princesses with the neighbors and sing. I like to go swimming, camping, looking for rocks and shells, going to the beach and gardening with families. I don't really like hiking.
I would like to live with kids who are close to my age, preferably girls. I would like a mom and a SAFE dad---and one girl teenager. The teenager can help put make up on me and go shopping with me. The thing I value most in a mom and dad is love. I really value a safe dad.
If I was a mom my rules would be: no running in the house, girls in one room and boys in the other, finish homework before TV, no fighting, obey me. I wouldn't have to worry about them saying bad words because they won't know any!
I would really like to do snorkeling, go on a cruise boat and go to Disney World. My favorite subject in school is reading and my least favorite is spelling. I like Christian rock and worship music. I like to do motions and dance to it. I like country music, too. My favorite foods are spaghetti with meatballs, top ramen, macaroni and cheese, strawberry shortcake and rocky road ice cream.
I would really like pets! I like horses, dogs and cats. I would like to live on a farm. I know how to rides horses, and I like doing it. I would like a pet of my own---like a pinto horse or a pug dog.
When I go to bed at night, I like my mom to scratch my back and sing to me. I would like a dad to go fishing and play baseball with me. I would like to take horseback riding lessons, be on a softball team and take swimming lessons. If I get an adoptive family, I will be kind to them."
Destiny's social worker describes her as "a special and resilient young lady." She has made great strides in her treatment and will need a family who can assist her in continued growth by helping her receive community supports, such as counseling and medication management. She will also need a family who can support her continued appropriate contact with her biological brothers. Destiny's adoption team will be looking for a loving family who can provide a structured and nurturing environment for this engaging, wonderful girl.
Destiny is available for adoption through the State of Oregon. For contact information, please contact the Idaho CareLine at 1-800-926-2588.
