OKLAHOMA CITY - Miranda is a teenager with very specific dreams.

The 13-year-old loves trying on makeup and dressing up her stuffed animals.

Miranda spent her morning making a stuffed animal with the same attributes she possesses.

"So whatever you want your heart to be,” the employee at Andy Alligators in Norman said.

“Courage,” Miranda said.

She’s a brave girl with specific interests.

"I have favorite animals out of breeds. Like out of dogs, my favorite is an Alaskan husky,” Miranda said.

When she's not making no-bake cookies, she's skateboarding. It’s something she's been doing since she was  6-years-old.

She's also likes making music.

"I like to write songs. Read books,” Miranda said.

She also likes to play the guitar, clarinet and the recorder.

"I like the guitar the most. I grew up on it," she said.

Miranda has been under the care of DHS for more than three years.

She says she is ready to have a new future with a loving and stable family to guide her into her teen years.

"That just does some fun things once in a while, but I don't care about the things. I just want someone to love me," she said.

And to be a sister to someone.

"I've always wanted a little sister or big sister. I would prefer a little sister because I don't really want an older sister telling me what to do," Miranda said.  "I would probably like two or three older brothers because I grew up with older brothers."

She knows what she wants in life. You can tell it's something she's thought a lot about.

"For my first high school job I want to work at Hot Topic just to get me started. That's a place where Gothic people can go and relax," she said.

What she wants to be when she grows up may surprise you.

"I want to be a car mechanic," Miranda said. "I just love cars. I love sports cars and Mustangs."

The process includes training and background checks. It doesn't cost anything to adopt.
