Wednesday's Child

Wednesday's Child: Sky

Sky feels at home with a horse. She's had lots of experience with horses, and it shows.

We met up at Free Rein Therapeutic Riding in Spokane, and got to spend some time with a Fjord named Henry.

Horses, and all animals really, are a passion for Sky, but she does have other interests.

“I like to draw, I like to listen to music, I like coloring, I love watching TV and playing video games, and I'm trying to play the guitar but I'm not really good at it yet,” said Sky.

She isn't afraid to take the reins and try new things, but she is actually a little afraid of being adopted.

This girl, who turned 15 in March, has been in a group foster home for a third of her life.

A family is what Sky wants more than anything.

“I really want to be adopted, cause I've never really experienced having a mom and dad kinda thing,” she said.

Sky knows that a lot of people might be afraid of adopting a 15-year-old, but she says teenagers can learn really fast.

As far as learning goes, Sky likes school, and history is her favorite subject. She is looking forward to starting a new school year and seeing her friends again.

She has goals, too. She wants to graduate high school, and graduate college.

“Then I need to get a job of course, and a house or an apartment, but then possibly I want to open up my bakery,” she said.

She wants to do all this with the love and support of parents to guide her and to be there for her every step of the way, from the routine to the special.

Sky has a lot to offer that family. She is caring and kind, funny and full of life, and she needs a forever family.
