CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- This energetic young lady is Mary, age 15. Mary has a bouncy, happy attitude, can be silly at times and is always well liked by others. She likes to play board games, work puzzles and loves sour Skittles. She can be a little shy at first but once she gets to know you, she is very social.
Mary really wants to find a forever family. She would like a family who is active and participates in extracurricular activities. She enjoys swimming, playing games, going places, shopping and going to Chuck E Cheese.
Because of disappointments in her life, Mary needs time to trust others. Mary needs a family who will be nurturing, patient and give her the time to develop a sense of security.
