Meet 16-year-old Arianna.

She’s got a big heart for animals and a bright smile. She likes socializing with other teens and has recently developed an interest in dating boys.

Arianna enjoys playing board games, music, movies, and she’s learning how to cook.

She’s hoping to find an adventurous family that can provide plenty of structure, individual encouragement and of course, unconditional love.

If you think you could be Arianna’s forever family, or for another Texas child, you can call 800-233-3405 or log on to adoptchildren.org for more information.
