“Then, they gave up,” 12-year-old girl looking for family to love her forever

OKLAHOMA CITY - A 12-year-old girl is tired of moving around and ready to be placed with a permanent family.

Anna was placed into DHS custody for the second time in just two years.

She said she used to have a family to take care of her.

"But, then, they gave up," she said.

Last year, Anna changed homes eight times in two months and is ready to settle down with a family who will always be there.

"I'd be there forever, no matter what happens," she said.

Anna longs for one-on-one attention and words of encouragement.

"Like, if I do good on something, have a good day and just be proud," she said.

She describes herself as a country girl because she loves animals, especially horses.

She would love to live on a farm and have siblings.

"Get to know each other, and just have fun," she said.

She is already planning her first outing with her dream family.

"I would want to go to White Water Bay and Frontier City," she said.
