This articulate pre-teen with leadership qualities is Esperanza, who likes to go by “Espi!” Art and music are her passion. She adores singing and is said to be quite talented. Espi loves animals and has a special place in her heart for horses. She gets along well with peers and favors Chinese food. When looking for a future career, Espi has her sights set on being a singing veterinarian.

She is in the seventh grade.

Espi would do best in a Christian family with a mom and a dad with pets in which she is the youngest child in the home; however, her caseworker will consider all family types. She will need to remain in contact with her sibling following placement. Her worker states, “Espi is a sweet girl who desires a family that will stand beside her forever. She desires a family that will protect her.” Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

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