Be a Buddy: Meet Vanessa

MIDLAND, Tx. (KOSA) – “I like reading about animals and school and non-fiction books,” Vanessa said.

Vanessa enjoys reading and learning so much, she’s even pulled out a dictionary.

“I started from the As,” Vanessa explained.

Vanessa and I enjoyed an afternoon together playing at Dennis the Menace park. The intelligent 8-year-old also has an athletic side.

One thing she would like to do with her big sister is: “go to the YMCA and play sports.” Vanessa says football and basketball are her favorites.

Vanessa would also like to go shopping with her big sister to buy: “shoes and school supplies.”

But more important than the activities, Vanessa is really just looking for a caring woman to be her big sister.

“Somebody nice, loving and kind,” Vanessa explained.
