Wednesday's Child: 13-Year-Old Serenity

(MARE) - Serenity is a curious and friendly girl of Caucasian descent. Serenity can be shy upon first meeting her, but once you start talking to her about her interests, she becomes much more talkative. Some of Serenity's favorite activities include being outside, at the beach, walking, going to the park, or staying inside and watching TV. She wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up because she loves working with animals.

Serenity is legally free for adoption and would thrive in a home with a female caregiver and is ideally seeking a single female or two female household but is open to exploring a mother/father household. She should also be the only/or the youngest child in the home. Serenity has an Open Adoption Agreement with her birth mother consisting of two visits per year. Interested families should be open to maintaining these visits.
