Monasia told NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert that art is her favorite subject, so Mary Jo Luster, at the Red Fork Art Gallery, gave Monasia a lesson to help her create her own painting. It was easy to see that for Monasia, it's more than just enjoying art, she has a lot of talent.
Monasia is an outstanding 13 year old. She takes school seriously and wants to go to college, and who knows? Maybe become famous someday.
"The reason why I really want to be famous is to just teach people how to draw, and I want to be famous so people can look at my art pictures and say that's really beautiful, I want to become an artist one day."
Monasia is outgoing, very polite and wants guidance from adults to help her learn and make good choices. Most of all, she's a very kind, caring and thoughtful child.
"I love to share everything with anybody. Like if someone's standing there lonely, I'd go up to them and say, do you want me to go talk? Or, you can come play with me."
DHS is hoping to find a single or two parent home where Monasia can find the support and love she is seeking. In return, they'll have a lovely daughter who wants to make their life complete, too.
"I hope to give my adoptive parents the best time, I want to make them happy, they chose me."
