Children Are A Gift: Jasmine

Posted: Updated:

EAST TEXAS (KYTX) -- 13-year-old Jasmine is a confident young lady. She enjoys meeting people and talking. 

"I like going shopping for new things," she said. "I like roller skating. I like playing sports and volleyball, running."  

She also enjoys music, art and travel and thinks she might want to be a writer someday.

"When I feel sad I put my feelings into a story," she said.

Those feelings of sadness come from spending three years in foster care.

"I had to change a lot of schools from 9 all the way up to now," she said. 

Jasmine had to make a lot of adjustments to overcome a chaotic lifestyle.

"While she's outgoing and very friendly and social, she also has a very low frustration level," Child Protective Services Caseworker Cindy Hodges said. "But, she's made so much progress during the time she's been in care."

Jasmine needs a patient forever family willing to offer positive reinforcement and realistic expectations.

"I want to be with a family that loves and cares for me as I am, instead of just being in a home to be around," she said.
