Wednesday's Child Kristy

Future phlebotomist Kristy, born in 2005, is a kind, sweet, friendly, caring and shy, at first, Caucasian teen who can be very funny and is a great friend to her peers. She loves spending time with family and friends, being outside, and listening to rap, pop and R&B music. The Weeknd, Skillet and 5 Seconds of Summer are her favorite artists. Kristy also loves having picnics, watching rom-coms, horror movies, and shows on Netflix, and reading. Reading is her favorite subject at school where she is well-behaved, earns good grades, and enjoys being around her peers and participating in social activities. Kristy needs a loving adoptive family with whom she may share her interests and who will give her the attention, support, encouragement, structure and nurturing environment she needs to continue to thrive and reach her goals. Her family will also need to support her desire to maintain her relationship with her sister who has been planned for separately.
