Katelyn - 5/10/13

Posted: Updated:

This week's Val's Kid is Katelyn.

Suited up and ready to grill with Chef John Reis at the Hilton Harrisburg. On the menu, her favorite food..."Shrimp!" said Katelyn, who enjoys fun new experiences.

"I really like her spunk and her sense of humor," said Adoption Worker Emily Thompson.

Katelyn also likes auto racing. "I like NASCAR," said Katelyn.

This teen already knows what she wants to do when she grows up.  Wilson College is on the list. "I want to be a lawyer," said Katelyn. "She has also said that she wants to be a foster parent too," said Thompson. A way to give back, since Katelyn has been in foster care for years.

"It's hard, she is really disconnected from her family and it's hard not having a permanent family. We are looking for a family that is structured but will also be flexible and allow her to have age appropriate privileges," said Thompson.

Katelyn would like to live in the country. She loves cats and dogs and would like to stay in touch with her biological siblings. "We want a family that would all her to call visit talk to them," said Thompson.
