Looking For Her Forever Family: Meet Mercedes

“Mercedes is 14 years old. She loves being a girly-girl. She loves singing and dancing. She likes to play outside and do cartwheels.” Tracy Holloway, the adoption specialist working with Mercedes, then adds: “She really just wants a family that will be her family forever. And that will love her for herself.”

Mercedes is hoping to attend college at ASU. She wants to become a zoologist. In her free time, she likes to paint and is learning how to play the piano.

Mercedes isn’t fussy about the family she ends up with. She just wants a family to call her own. “I picture just anybody who would care about me and treat me the way I’m supposed to be treated.”
