10-year-old Angelica hoping her next move is her last

Posted: Updated:

She's a 10-year-old girl who hopes her next move will be her last. Angelica told News 8 that she's tired of being moved around in the foster care system and just wants a family to come home to at the end of the day. This is a fun-loving girl, who wants the simple things in life, which most kids her age take for granted.

Angelica is a natural at the hula hoop. She makes it look so effortless, wowing those around with her skills. Angelica also likes things that spin and the one thing you can't miss when she is spinning is her thick, beautiful hair flying by.

At one time, angelica had her hair cut off for the charity Locks of Love, and she is growing it out once again, so she can help someone else.

"I donated my hair, so they can make a wig out of it and give it to somebody with cancer, so they won't feel depressed and sad. I hope whoever is wearing my hair will get better," said explained.

And what this thoughtful 10-year-old deserves is a forever family who will make her life better, which is why she agreed to be featured on Adopt 8.

The last few years in the foster care system have been full of uncertainty.

"It's been really hard, makes me feel really sad," said Angelica.

Angelica has been uprooted time and time again. And says it's horrible living in a group home. And though she's in a good foster home now, what she needs is a permanent home.

"I really hope that they have a lot of animals, because I love animals, like dogs and guinea pigs and gerbils and cats and every kind of animal, even a pig," noted Angelica.

Angelica is yearning to share the simple things in life with a family, such as riding bikes and hiking. She dreams of having a mom and dad.

But with no one there to have heart to heart talks with right now, Angelica has found an incredible outlet in tap and ballet.

"It makes me feel like I can burn off steam and just release all my feelings there," she continued.

As serious as Angelica can be, she can be equally silly. And while she can play around, Angelica desires the attention that parents could give her, nurturing her through adolescence and beyond.

"It's going to be really nice when I find them," she said.
