Portrait of Candelaria

  • Birth Year: 2007
  • Child ID: 334514
Art is a huge part of Candelaria’s, who likes to go by “Maria,” life! She doesn’t shy away from projects, and she loves putting pencil to paper to draw or paint to canvas to create original pieces. Along with art, Maria enjoys dancing, music, and singing. Rap is her favorite genre of music, and she never passes up a chance to relax and watch anime. This girl appreciates looking her best, so Maria likes doing her nails, makeup, and hair. She says her favorite color is black. Cats are the cutest animal in her eyes. Takis, Taco Bell, and apples are her top food picks. Maria is a funny child who thrives on one-on-one time with adults. She hopes that her love for manicures and paint colors will become a career as a nail artist when she is grown.

This eighth-grader feels proud of the As and Bs she earns. Socializing and her art class are just a few aspects she appreciates about school.

Maria would do best in a family in which she is the only child in the home; however, her caseworker will consider all family types. She has significant connections to maintain following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

For Missouri children, both home studied and non-home studied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only home studied families from other states should do so.
