Wednesday's Child-Ramona

Posted: Updated:

Ramona was 12 years old when we first met her two years ago. Her fear was not being adopted with her two younger brothers and big sister Raven. On this week's Wednesday's Child she is hoping her forever family is watching and will give them a permanent place to call home.

Ramona is not talkative. She would rather be with her big sister Raven than any other person in the world.

"I'm looking at your nails and the pink. Everything's matching. Are you a glamour girl? Nods yes. I heard somebody say diva. Are you a diva..(laughter).. Your sister and brothers say yes."

Ramona says she enjoys dressing up and pretending to be a runway model.

"You like to get your nails done. I like to get my hair done, go outside and go to the skating rink," Ramona said.

She likes school and says she sometimes thinks about becoming a teacher.

"What would you like to teach? What subject? Math," said Ramona. 

Ramona lives with her two younger brothers in a foster home. Being away from Raven is difficult.

"It's okay, but I want my sister with us," Ramona said. 

The only acceptable family for Ramona is the family who will take all of them.

"Good parents that are going to take care of us and not beat on us and stuff like that, and make, I mean have us going to school, and help us with our work and stuff," said Ramona.
