Gift of Love:Christy, Loving Little Girl

The influence loving, caring parents have on a child can never be under estimated. That influence is exactly what foster children need to get them back on track. Here's Christy's story in KLTV 7's Gift of Love.

Christy is an adorable little girl with a smile that will melt your heart. Her favorite things? "My toys. I like my Barbies. My favorite color is pink."

She is sweet and polite, but she can also test you because of uncertainty in her young life. She was abandoned at just 14 months old. She's spent the last four years being bounced between six foster homes.

"She really hasn't had a consistent, loving, permanent home which I think with that she would do really well and I think if we could find the right home, she could be an excellent, excellent child," says Denise Killgore, Child Protective Services caseworker.

Christy is five years old and in kindergarten. She's doing well in school but needs help staying on task. She craves attention and responds well to positive reinforcement.

She would do best as the youngest, or only, child in a forever family. Christy is cautious of new people and leery of new situations. She will need time to adjust to a new family.

"I know she wants to be adopted. she said she wants to be where there are other homes, like in a neighborhood as opposed to out in the country."

"I'm a loving little girl," says Christy.  This little girl is just waiting to blossom. "I want the Gift of Love."
