My name is Katherine and I am 7 years old, almost 8 years old. I came into foster care when I was 5 years old. I just got to be adopted this year, with my brother Kameron.

Some things that I really want are a tablet, so that I have something that I can play learning games and read on and I can take it anywhere I want. I also want to keep going on vacations every year with my family. I went on my first trip to the beach this year and I want to go back next year. I also want more baby dolls because that’s my favorite thing to play with.

For my future, my wish is to always have plenty of food. I always want to be safe for the rest of my life. I also would like to get to have birthday parties for all of my birthdays, or at least the special ones. I don’t want to ever be in foster care again. I always want to have someone to talk to when I feel sad or happy, like my mom. When I grow up, I really want to be a doctor so that I can help people.
