Fifteen-year-old Maria will soon be sixteen, and she says she really wants to be adopted.
Maria could bring a special quality to a permanent home. She's very likable, very friendly, very easy to talk with, and very easy to laugh with.
Maria has a creative talent. She loves drama, and she likes to draw. She demonstated her talent during her Monday's Child taping by making chalk drawings on the sidewalk.
Maria is looking forward to going to college after graduating high school and says, "I would really like a Mom and Dad to come back home to, because there's going to be a lot of issues in college that make me upset, and I just need somebody -- a Mom and Dad to run to."
Maria needs a family who can give her what she wants most, a lot of unconditional love.
