A Waiting Child: Zoe

MISSOULA – This month’s A Waiting Child is an outgoing 15-year-old from Missoula who loves animals.

“I have a sense of humor, I’m very outgoing, I like to try new things,” Zoe said.

She loves playing with puppies because of their unconditional love and companionship. Zoe is looking for the same things in a family.

“I want someone that’s going to stick with me through the rough and the good, that’d be great,” Zoe said.

She’d like a single mom or a family with younger siblings, “A safe spot, or a support system, where I can go and I’m not going to be judged.”

Zoe will be a sophomore in the fall and her favorite subject is science, “Earth Science, that’s pretty cool actually.”

She wants to be a dentist when she graduates. “I just found dentistry really interesting. You get to work with other people, help them out.”

Zoe also loves music, hiking and playing hackysack with her friends. “Friends are very important to me, I love to spend time with my friends.”

She wants a family who will support and encourage her to achieve her goals.

“I like to be free, I like to be who I am. If someone’s gonna help me do that then that’d be awesome,” Zoe said.
