This 12-year-old has a ton of energy, is easy going, and has a heart of gold. We first introduced you to her last year and she remains in need of a loving adoptive family. Meet Jessica, June's Wednesday's Child.
It was this sixth grader's first time sitting under the bright lights of the WTAP studio and she was a natural.
Jessica can light up any room with her personality and optimism, even though life hasn't been easy for this young girl.
She currently lives in foster care and wants to be part of a forever family.
"Dogs, cats, and children and a mom and dad," Jessica said.
She's a true team player.
When we went to the Ann Street Adventure Station in Parkersburg, she led the group with her contagious enthusiasm, can do attitude and hit the ground running in the laser tag arena.
She maneuvered through the maze of rooms with her drive, hard work ethic, and determination.
"We won (laser tag)!" she said.
Jessica works hard to be the best in whatever she's doing whether it's laser tag, sports, or school,
Her favorite subject is math and she has known for some time she wants to help others when she grows up. She wants to become a doctor.
Jessica has some medical needs including cerebral palsy but she doesn't let anything get in her way.
She's aiming high in life to reach her goals and needs an adoptvie family to help her achieve them.
Her case worker said a family in which she would be the youngest is preferred.
Parents who can give her unconditional love and attention to help guide her through life.
