If it were up to this mermaid fanatic, her day would be filled with endless episodes of Mako Mermaid! Patricia, who likes to go by “Tish,” has a playful spirit that she uses to make friends wherever she goes. She thrives on one-on-one attention from adults and enjoys time with peers. Although she isn’t a picky eater, Tish has a sweet tooth and loves pepperoni pizza but asks that the green beans stay in the cabinet. Playing is always a top priority for this sweet girl, and she can often be found in the company of her baby doll or stuffed dog while coloring. Tish delights in listening to music, especially K-Pop bands like BTS. She favors the color purple and hopes to have a “real dog” someday.

She is in the fourth grade.

Tish would do best in a two-parent Christian family with pets, living in a rural area, in which she can be the only child; however, her caseworker will consider all family types. When Tish was asked what she was looking forward to most about having a family, she said, “I want a family to celebrate the holidays with, especially Christmas. I love Jesus’ birthday.” 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.
