PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Marissa is a confident and funny young woman who lights up a room with her personality and her smile.
She also said she’s very responsible and is earning extra money because “I can officially now babysit.”
The 12-year-old’s laughter and smile hide the fact she’s had a difficult life. She wants to find an adoptive family in a place she can call her own.
Marissa is Wednesday’s Child for May 11, 2016.
