Wednesday’s Child: 15-Year-Old Samantha
BOSTON (CBS) – Samantha, or Sam to her friends, is a kind and friendly 15-year-old young lady of Caucasian descent who enjoys spending her days in the great outdoors.
No matter what type of outdoor game is being played, Sam will eagerly join in the fun. Her top picks for sports include basketball, soccer, and swimming. When she is ready for a break, Sam loves to have a treat of mint ice-cream. Sam is seeking an active adoptive family where she will flourish and reach her full potential.
When she can’t be outdoors, Samantha enjoys making beaded necklaces and doing other arts and crafts projects.

With a bright smile and an infectious laugh, Sam has a love for animals that shines through when she has the opportunity to be around them. She hopes to work with animals when she gets older and especially likes dogs, pigs, and horses.
Samantha currently lives in a residential program for children with developmental disabilities and benefits from the supports that she receives at school and in her program. She is making positive strides in both her peer relations and her academics. Science and math are her favorite subjects. Sam gets along well with the adults in her life.
Legally free for adoption, Samantha would do well in a two-parent or a single female family with or without other children. A family that is open to birth family contact would be ideal. Samantha has a lot to bring to a family that would enjoy her for who she is and that would shower her with the love and support she needs to continue to thrive.
