DeannaOpen Your Life to Adoption.
Open Your Life to Angel.

Angela or Angel as she prefers to be called, is 12 years old. She likes to read and is a good student academically. She likes going to church, coloring, crafting and playing card and board games. Angel enjoys spending time outdoors and enjoys roller skating and riding her bike. She also has an interest in cooking and would like to learn how to bake. She enjoys spending time with others and likes to joke around. 
 
Angel takes a little while to bond but with continued therapy and the right family who understands this, she will be a wonderful addition to her forever family. Angel’s worker feels she should be transitioned into her forever home on a gradual basis and she should be the youngest child in the home. She would love to have a pet of her own and wouldn’t mind living in the country.

What: The SMART 5.29K Run/Walk raises money for SMART529 College Savings Plan scholarships for children adopted out of the foster care system in West Virginia. National statistics show less than 3 percent of kids who grow up in the foster care system go on to obtain a college degree. When a child from foster care is adopted into a loving family, his/her fresh start can also include a brighter future through higher education. 

All proceeds from the 5.29K registration, minus a $3.00 race fee, will be deposited into SMART529 College Savings Accounts. The accounts will be awarded through a selection process administered by Frameworks and Mission West Virginia. The registration fee is $35 the day of the event and $30 online until May 17th.
