4 Ever Family: Luisa

4ever Family

HARLINGEN, Texas (KVEO) — CBS4 is committed to finding great homes for amazing children. Meet Luisa, a 15-year-old seeking a special family.

Like many children her age, Luisa enjoys social media especially taking pictures and singing.

Luisa likes being out and about, shopping and keeping busy. If there’s a chance for a quick meal, McDonald’s or Chick-Fil-A, are her favorite spots. 

She really enjoys being around other children, which helped her in choosing her goal of becoming a teacher. Luisa also has a newfound enjoyment, as she is learning to ride horses.

If you think you could be Luisa’s forever family, or for another Texas child, head to www.adoptchildren.org or call 1-800-233-3405 to learn more about the foster/adoption process, you can also find the web links to the statewide online Informational meetings, as they are the first step in the foster to adopt process.
