Marissa is a pretty name for a pretty girl. And, since this 15 year old enjoys arts and crafts, Color Me Mine Paint Studio, at the Jenks Riverwalk, invited her to be their guest.
NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert says Marissa is a very positive teenager, makes friends easily, enjoys a wide variety of interests, including sports and fishing... and she loves living in the country. Ever since she was little, she has enjoyed playing in the mud!
"Sometimes I go barefooted in it. And, like when it goes between my toes, it feels good, like all squishy and everything."
Marissa has been in 4-H at school and received a ribbon for the bead necklace she made. She loves animals and would like to have her own dog someday.. maybe a chi-weenie.
At the top of her list, though, is Marissa's faith. She just attended church camp.. and she as her heart set on becoming a missionary.
"I feel like I need to bring them to God, so everybody I can get to listen to me and get saved can go to heaven."
But, right now, Marissa needs to find an adoptive home. A family that will give her spiritual support and be involved in her life day to day.
"If I have a loving family then I will be just like a normal happy kid."
Marissa is ready to share her love, are you? We hope you'll call DHS to find out more about this pretty girl with a pretty name.
The number at child welfare is 918-581-2033. They'd love to tell you more about Marissa and the adoption program.
