OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – She’s a young girl who has spent most of her life searching for a place to call home.
It’s been 8 years since Ember entered DHS custody at the tender age of three – but the now-11-year-old hasn’t let it bring her down.
Ember is a happy, sweet young girl and is truly a joy to be around.
She loves fashion, dolls and even – get this – making her bed – every day!
“Because after I got it done, it was looking like it was magical,” Ember told News 4. “I like to clean my room a lot.”
The only thing brighter than the flowers at the Myriad Gardens during our visit with her was Ember’s sunny personality – and her sense of fashion.
“I like to get dressed up – like any kind of style,” said Ember.
Ember is an incredibly upbeat child
“I like everything,” she said.
Ember is still finding the bright side in life – even though she’s spent eight of her 11 years searching for a family.
“Hard, it was really hard,” she said.
News 4 asked Ember what her perfect life would be like.
“It would be happy,” she said. “A calm, simple, nice environment.”
Those who know Ember best say she has a loving, tender spirit.
They say she’s sensitive to the words and feelings of others – and needs a structured life with someone who can give her time, love and patience.
If you ask her what she wants – to live in a skyscraper – with her perfect family.
“Mom and dad, brother and sister, I want cats, dogs, horses,” she said.
A young girl with a big personality – and an even bigger heart – searching for a place to call home.
