OKLAHOMA CITY - Deanna has been in DHS custody for two years now and is ready for a stable home.

The 11-year-old, who is a little timid, loves spending Sundays at church.

"Listening to Jesus,” Deanna said when asked about her favorite part of church.

Right now, she lives with a foster mom, whom she adores.

Deanna has developmental disabilities but can do most things on her own.

"She's very affectionate. She loves spaghetti and burritos, and she loves to go places. She loves to go shopping," said Natasha Cornell, caseworker for Deanna.

What she really needs now is a permanent home with a loving family.

"She's not too picky. She says she just wants someone who's nice and who'll love her," Cornell said. "She needs to feel connected to someone, and she's been waiting a long time, and she really, really wants a home."

If you want to adopt Deanna, call 405-767-2955.
