An energetic 10-year-old girl who loves to travel is Hamilton County Job and Family Services’ Waiting Child for the month of February.
Hamilton County spotlights some of the children available for adoption with monthly releases to local media.
“We’re looking at innovative ways of getting our children before the public so we can find them safe, loving homes,” said Moira Weir, director of the department. “Every child deserves a permanent home and we know there are hundreds of loving families throughout this community that would be willing to open up their doors and their hearts to our children.”
Keira says she would like to be adopted by both a mom and a dad who like to take trips and play games. This energetic girl says she wants parents who enjoy vacationing in spots like Gatlinburg and who like taking daytrips to places like Kings Island. When she’s not on the go, Keira enjoys playing cards, Pictionary and Apples to Apples. She also is an animal lover, so a family with a cat or dog would be nice as well.
Keira says she is pretty smart and proud of her ability to spell. She does well in school and plans to keep studying all the way through nursing school. Keira says she enjoys playing basketball and likes to relax by watching golf on TV or reading her Pretty Little Liars book. Even though she likes to joke around and be silly, Keira says she likes things to be clean and neat. When it’s time to get chores done, Keira doesn’t mess around.
Hamilton County currently has about 190 children available for adoption. The county’s Children’s Services Division often must take custody of children who are the victims of abuse or neglect and cannot be safely reunited with their families. Those interested in adopting can learn more at www.hckids.org or by calling (513) 632-6366 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
