RICHMOND, Va. -- Children in the foster care system may have a hard time getting past what they've already had to endure in life.
But 17-year-old Aangel has such a positive spirit and outlook.
"Three things about me is that I'm loving, caring and determined," she said. "If there's a kid that comes in foster care the advice I have for them is to not let their family get to them when they're mad. Just go in their room and take space to themself."
And she has big dreams for her future.
"When I grow up I want to be a police officer, a firefighter, a teacher, a babysitter, and a social worker," she said. "Something that is special about me is I would encourage everyone to have a positive day and move on about the negative things that they have left behind."

In Virginia, we have hundreds of children who are ready for foster to adoption. In other words, these children are ready to find their permanent and loving forever families. As Connecting Hearts – A Deborah J Johnston Charity, celebrates National Adoption Month, our “30 Kids in 30 Days” initiative is to bring awareness to 30 kids or sibling who are available for forever homes, but also to shed light on the other almost 700 children who may not be seen. Our kids are all ages and races, they were put in foster care due to no fault of their own. To learn more and becoming a foster to adoption parent(s) click here.
