Children are a Gift: Diane

Posted: Updated:
TYLER (KYTX) – Diane is a friendly, insightful young lady who likes animals and spending time outside.

"I like riding dirt bikes and 4-wheelers. I like playing with dogs and I like cats."

This 7th-grader is very creative. She enjoys singing in the school choir and making things. "I like to do art and whatever comes to my mind I just do it."

"She makes friends pretty well and is doing well in school. She has to have some tutoring in one subject but other than that she's doing really well at school," explained Kim Rhodes her CPS caseworker.

This 14-year-old has been in foster care about five years. Rhodes said, "Teenagers have a hard time figuring who they are anyway and add to that foster care and not having a family can be really hard to figure out who they are going to be."

Diane has also had lots of disappointment. "I’ve been adopted before, but it didn't work out. It made me feel kind of mad and kind of sad."

"She's wondering if there is somebody out there for her that's a good family and I believe there is, we just haven't quite found them yet," said Rhodes.

Diane needs a family who will be patient and understanding, and give her time to trust again. "She's got a good heart. She just needs somebody who can help her control her emotions and I think she can learn that because she wants to do right."

A young girl with a good heart and a desire to be loved. "Because I want a family!"
