been hearing so much about children in
Chris Cerenelli has this month’s edition of Hearts Without Homes.
A nine year old girl who has big dreams needs a forever family to make them come true.
Nine year old Awme is a young lady of many talents... from singing, to dancing, to art.
She's a student at Sarah Reed and was quick to school me on the finer points of glitter paint.
But for as much as she has going for her, she needs a family to share it with.
Awme says, I need a bed and blankets and pillow and I need food.”
Elisha Pancoast of Family Services NWPA says, “She's one of those kids that hasn't had stability... a lot of life experience in a very short amount of time, funny, you know, great sense of humor.”
She exudes a lot of focus for someone so young and for good reason - becoming a professional singer and dancer are just a few of her ambitions.
Chris: Tell me what kind of dances you do.
Awme: When I dance, I don't really have a dance planned out, I just think of it while I'm doing it.
Her love for animals is driving her to want to study to become a veterinarian when she gets older.
But what she'd love more than anything is the love, support, and unconditional friendship of a forever family.
Pancoast says, “She's even open to trying new things, you know, we'd talked about maybe playing soccer, she wants to be a cheerleader, you know, she wants to get out there and be active and she needs a family that's definitely going to foster that.”
Chris: If they were watching this, what would you tell them about you?
Awme: That I'm very hopeful that one of them will take me.
