She is a typical girly girl who likes the colors pink and purple but she is also not afraid of wolves and bears.

This talented 9-year-old loves to try new things but now she really wants and needs a permanent family.

Meet Maranda, September's Wednesday's Child.

It was a sunny autumn day when I met Maranda at the Parchment Valley Conference Center in Ripley Wednesday. It was a fitting backdrop to meet this bright spirited girl.

"I just do cartwheels and swing and slide," said Maranda.

Like most students this third grader was pretty pumped to be out of school for the day and she said her favorite subject is recess.

Maranda also likes math and reading too. She said that her favorite book is the Bible.

She's been through a lot so far in her young life but Maranda's not afraid to get back up and try again when it comes to cart wheels and life.

There's no limits for this 9-year-old. She's reaching for the stars

"I want to go to Hollywood," said Maranda.

When she grows up she said that she wants to become famous and plans to go to college but before she becomes an adult she wants the routine a family can provide.

"Go shopping and go out to eat," said Maranda.

Like the reliability of the changing seasons each year, Maranda needs parents who will always be there for her year after year.
