Wednesday’s Child: 12-Year-Old Kim
BOSTON (CBS) – Kimberly is an outgoing young lady of Hispanic descent who has a big heart and a smile to match. She uses her friendly personality to engage you in conversation and relates well to both adults and peers. Kim has a small group of close friends and is seeking an adoptive family that gives her some freedom to spend time with her friends, possibly going to the mall or the movies.
Kimberly does well academically in school and has an Individual Educational Plan to help her in reading. She is well-behaved both in school and in her foster home. For her pastimes, 12-year-old Kim is interested in many of the activities girls her age enjoy. When asked what she likes to do the best, Kim stated that she “likes to shop, have her hair done, and her nails painted.” Kim also loves to read sci fi and adventure books, and especially enjoyed the Hunger Games series. Last summer, she attended camp where she practiced archery and wishes she could do more of it. Kim is also interested in performing arts and would like to try acting in the future.
Kimberly would do well in a family of any constellation with or without other children, but she would prefer having siblings either close to her age or older. Legally free for adoption, Kim needs a family willing to help her maintain contact with her birth parents, through an open adoption agreement, as well as her older brother. Kimberly would bring a lot of joy to a loving family who could help her continue on the positive path that she is currently on and support her in pursuing her dreams and reaching her potential.
