The folks at Purple Glaze in Brookside always have an open door for our Waiting Children. So, that's where NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert took Kassandra. For Kassandra, who likes to be called Kassie, it was the perfect activity!
"I love art. I love painting. I just love all that stuff I haven't done this in a long time, I haven't painted in a long time."
Kassie will be 11 in February. She's in the 5th grade and loves school.
"This year, the last report card and last progress report, straight A's, no matter what, yeh."
Kassie wants to be a special education teacher to help children with special needs. She delights in helping others and keeps a very positive attitude.
"Being a Christian, I know my life is put into God. I know that God is inside my heart. He's with me all the time, so if I'm just having a bad day, I can go and I can pray wherever I want to. I just like to be able to do that."
Kassie keeps faith that there is a family that would like to adopt her. She wants that more than anything.
"I've just got to know that I've got to keep my chin up and just pray that I can have a family."
