Wednesday's Child- Aaliyah

This week's Wednesday's Child dreams of a shopping spree and a cell phone with an unlimited plan for everything.  Aaliyah was first featured three years ago and is now 15 years old. She is hoping to dial the right number for a forever family.

Aaliyah takes pride in her appearance and especially enjoys shopping for new clothes.

Aaliyah said, “I like to play basketball, shopping and watch TV. I like to hang out with my friends, shop and talk on the phone most of the time.”

Aaliyah has a special bond with her younger sister who did not want to participate in the taping.  But she says like most little sisters she can be irritating.

Aaliyah explained, “she likes singing. Oh..Can she sing? Nods yes.  Can she? Okay what does she sing? She sings Trust and Believe. And does she sing it over, and over, and over again? Yes mam. Oh and you can take it the first time, about what time does it become annoying? When she does it the third time.”

Her favorite class in school is math and that class helped her decide what she wants to do when she grows up.

Aaliyah told us, “teach. Why did you decide teaching? Cause I like doing math.  What grade would you like to teach when you get ready to be a teacher? Third.”

Aaliyah says only one word comes to  mind when she thinks about a forever family, although she says it is important to be adopted with her sister.

Aaliyah said, “fun people that like to do things. Reporter:  Like what? What would you like to do with your new family? Aaliyah said, go shopping.”

Aaliyah and her sister have been waiting for a forever family but she is hoping she will soon have a Mom and Dad to help her pick out clothes, plan family vacations and sing the same song over and over again.
