OKLAHOMA CITY -Sarah is an active teenager who loves to sing and enjoys hip hop dancing.

In fact, she is about to show off her skills by singing a solo in a talent show.

“I'm doing a solo all by myself," Sarah said. "The staff told me that since I can do very high notes and very low notes, I can do anything."

It will be a very personal performance for the 15-year-old.

"What we're going to do is at the end of it, because I'm going to be the ending singer, and at the end of it we are going to have pictures in the background of all of the kids that have been here, that I knew here, all the way until the present day,"  Sarah said.



She does not have stage fright, but it is a different story for the water slide at White Water Bay.

“Not really that bad, but I like, have butterflies in my stomach for a little bit. I don't know if I have a fear of heights or not,” Sarah said.

Now, she is looking for a family to call her own.

"I've never been with a real family so I don't know how one acts or is or anything," she said.

She has lived in foster homes since 2010.

"I live with 16 girls," Sarah said.

She wants to be adopted before she turns 18-years-old, and she hopes a family will show her how to love and be loved.

“I really don't know because I don't know how a true family is,” Sarah said.

If she had a choice, she says she'd like to have a brother or sister.



“Younger would probably be better," she said. "I like chasing after little kids, and I've never had a sibling."

Really all she wants is a family to share her life.

"I want to be able to have fun and be normal and not have to be put down," Sarah said.

She just needs a family to support her through her solo performances and beyond.
