Caitlin from Texas
Caitlin is an active girl who enjoys making friends and really wants a forever family to call her own. Like most girls her age, Caitlin enjoys playing outside, playing games, listening to music, and going to church. Caitlin enjoys interacting with other children but becomes easily agitated when she doesn't get her way. Caitlin needs direction to comply with adult requests and rules and needs to learn to take responsibility for her mistakes and actions. Caitlin says she would like to live in the country or in a town, as long as she has a good place to ride her bike. If she could absolutely pick a place to live, it would be on a farm where she could ride her bike out to feed her horse. Caitlin likes spending time with animals such as dogs, cats, horses, cows, and bunnies. She is also very good at arts and crafts; even sitting for long periods of time putting her heart into some special project for herself or someone she loves. She likes school and loves to learn. Caitlin is hoping to have her own room when she moves in with her new family; a place she can unwind and be herself; a place to call her own and feel really safe about it all. Caitlin would also like a family that spends time together and will give her a chance to just be a girl doing the things a girl her age gets to do; even those cowgirl type things.
