She's an artist, gymnast, and an all around fun-loving girl who's in need of an adoptive family. Meet Quintajia, this month's Wednesday's Child.

When I first met Quintajia in Wendy's she lit up the room with her personality.

"Can this really hear me? Awesome," she said into the microphone.

This 10-year-old got her favorites, french fries, a sandwich and a specialty drink but there's one thing that's not on the menu she really wants- a forever family.

"Lots of sisters, less brothers, and just a mom."

This fourth grader currently lives in foster care and hopes to some day have siblings and parents to play sports with, draw pictures for and in her own words "I wanna have fun."

She dreams of living on a farm and she's already had some practice at milking.

This bright-eyed girl has a big place in her heart for animals, enjoys making crafts, and playing games like laser tag.

We took her to the Ann Street Adventure Station in downtown Parkersburg where she navigated through the laser tag arena leading her team to victory.

In the arcade room she tried her hand at white water rafting and ribbit racin in which she came out on top again!

There isn't much this girl doesn't want to explore and experience, she now just needs a loving adoptive family to guide her in the right direction.

For more information on Quintajia go to adoptawvchild.org or call 1-866-CALL-MWV.
