Wednesday's Child: Annette

By Larry Kane
Produced by Timothy McLaughlin

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) --  Annette is a thrill-seeker, whether it's scary movies -- ("Love 'em!") or amusement park rides ("I love roller coasters").

This 16-year-old loves anything that gets her heart pounding.

"Technically speaking, life technically is a roller coaster," she says. And she says it's a metaphor that describes her own life.

"I have my ups and downs, and I feel like sometimes I'll go in a complete circle and... I guess bad things happen, but then good things come."

And she's looking for a forever family who can ride life's ups and downs with her.

"Someone who's willing to, like, handle the problems that I have. And, who kind of won't abandon me. And somebody who will love me for me."
