FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Each Sunday, ABC21 introduces you to kids in the foster care system through our partnership with Grant Me Hope.

ABC21 collaborates with the Grant Me Hope organization, an initiative to find older foster children adoptive homes before they age out of the foster care system.

“Hi! my name is Kristal and I’m nine years old and in third grade. My best friend would say I’m sassy and I like getting my way. What I like to do with my friends is play tag or I like swinging with them and going down the slides and playing. I like reading and math because my teacher breaks it down for us, and when we’re reading, we read little by little and our teacher calls on us to read sometimes or she just reads to us. I’m smart. I do like school. When I grow up, I want to be a cowgirl or a doctor. Because I get to ride a horse and I like horses. And I want to be a doctor because I like helping people. I like cats and dogs because cats purr oin you to show their love. And dogs, they just rub on you for them to pet you. I wish to get adopted. I don’t care what they look like, I just want them to be nice and kind to me. I want them to help with my homework and play with me. I’d like a family with brothers and sisters. With my family, I’d like to go to the beach and spend time with them.”
