Maryjean might seem shy at first, but if she’s around friends, she’s being sarcastic and cracking all the jokes! This 16-year-old says she relies on her friends to be there for her when she needs someone to talk to. Maryjean enjoys reading and listening to music, heavy metal, she says, because of the emotion in it. She hopes to put her imagination to work when she grows up by writing novels.

Adoption means someone opening their heart and home to a child who wasn’t born to that. Grab a tissue before watching Maryjean’s video.
