Wednesday's Child: Traci

She has been moved more than a dozen times in foster care, but  Traci who is 17 years old says she has so much to look forward to like finding a forever family on this week's Wednesday's Child.

Traci has a mega watt smile. She says she was nervous at first about Wednesday's Child but when she relaxed she talked openly about her hopes and plans for the future.

"I want to be a veterinarian. And do you want to specialize in small animals, big animals, or all animals? All animals. I really love animals. My life is about animals," said Traci.

Traci loves animals so much she says she nursed an injured fox back to health.

"This one, it's like he trusted me. It's like he sensed that I liked animals and he let me help him," Traci said.

Traci is affectionate, usually happy, enjoys laughing and has a great sense of humor.

"I'm always happy. And every time, if I'm around somebody who's upset, I can make them, I can cheer them up," said Traci.

Being in foster care has not been easy for Traci.

"I have moved about 15 or 16 times in the last five years. I want to get adopted that way I won't have to move around. Cause it's hard changing schools and then changing friends. You never really get to have a lot of friends," Traci said.

Traci wants parents who are caring and supportive.

"Just loving, love animals, just a nice place, like a nice environment. That's it, that's all I'm asking for," said Traci.

It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
