Meet 11 year old Rayonna. Outgoing, sweet, and doesn't know the meaning of shy. We met up with her at Purple Glaze at Brookside where Jeff showed her the ropes and proper brush.
"This is cool 'cause it has all these statues that you can paint like cats, owls, frogs, Mickey, Sponge Bob," says Rayonna.
Rayonna is doing well at school and says that recess and lunch are her favorites because she gets the chance to talk with her friends. Whether it's games, or hanging around outside, or just chatting, what Rayonna really loves is music, "I want to be a singer on TV, I want to be popular, I want to be famous, I want to be good. Sing my heart out on the show."
She also loves talking about her Christian faith and why it's so important to her, "I want to be a pastor, I believe in God, and I'm going to do the right things, so I can get a home."
It's that home that is truly Rayanna's heart's desire, "I really want to be adopted by a family that loves me, and cares about me, and likes music like me. I really want a family like that."
What would she tell that family that she could bring, "I love you guys, thank you for being there for me. I appreciate it. I'll hug them so tight that I would be just so glad."
