Fifteen ... it's a tough age. But it's even harder when you don't have a permanent place to live or a family to call your own. This has been Taylor's reality for more than two years.
But this smart, funny, sweet 15-year-old is not going to let that define who she is. She has big dreams. Taylor wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up. She says "animals make me happy and forget about everything. I would be happy if I could save a life."
Taylor also loves to draw and of course, animals are her favorite subjects. She also likes to spend her time hanging out with friends.
This beautiful teenager also wants people to understand her .. where she's been and where she's going. "I don't want to be in foster care anymore. I just want someone to love me and care about me."
You truly only have to spend a little bit of time with Taylor to see the amazing young woman she is becoming. But she needs the support and love of a commited family to bring out her full potential. She just needs someone to believe in her.
Besides the big wish of a forever family, Taylor also has a little wish. She would like an art set.
To learn more about Taylor becoming part of your family or granting her little wish, please call the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition at 1-800-FOSTER3.
