RICHMOND, Va. -- November is National Adoption Month and CBS 6 has again partnered with JFS Connecting Hearts and Virginia Kids Belong to help find every child in the Virginia foster system a loving family.
Meet 15-year-old Serenity.
"I want to belong in a family because I don't want to be in foster care forever, I guess, and so I'm not alone," she said.
Serenity loves making art, likes to read and journal, and has a big heart.
"My friends would say I'm funny, caring, confident, um, artistic, and capable," she said. "Some fun things I like to do are draw, paint, color, any arts and crafts. Write music, listen to music. like anything in the creative area."
She has a plan for her future.
"I hope to be a cosmetologist, and braiding hair, or an interior designer, that's Plan B," she said.
To reach that goal, Serenity said she knows what she wants in a permanent home.
"Animals, small kids, no older kids, mom and a dad. In the city hopefully. It doesn't really matter but in the city that's my preference," she said. "[We'd have] a movie night in the living room maybe, have a board game night, card night, stuff like that."
"I Belong Project" videos are a project of Virginia's Kids Belong in cooperation with America's Kids Belong.
