Other things that top Kat’s list are black for color, pizza for food and dogs and cats for animal. “She cares about animals and enjoys helping take care of them,” says one of Kat’s close adults. Of all the holidays, Kat like Halloween the most so she can “hang out with friends.” If she could travel anywhere, Kat would go to Paris. “I want to go there because I want to see the Eiffel Tower,” she says.

Kat prefers a forever family with a mom and dad, but a single female parent may be considered. She would do best as the only child in the home. Her new parent or parents should be experienced and trauma informed, and they must make sure Kat gets any services that will benefit her. Her new parent or parents must be open and accepting of Kat no matter what. Finally, Kat loves animals and prefers a family who has pets.
