MISSOULA — She's high energy and social and takes every opportunity she gets to go shopping -- and she's very excited about finding a forever family.

Meet Destiny who is this month’s A Waiting Child.

Pink toes, pink outfit, and loves to shop -- she hopes her new mother does too.

“That she wants to be with me and that she wants to go shopping when go shopping.”

Destiny is also hoping for a couple of special qualities, “she’s funny and smart and nice.”

She loves technology and managed to add some new apps to our reporter’s phone.

“I’m giving you a Star Wars thing. Do you like Star Wars?" Destiny asked.

“[I] like to play my DS, I have a DS. I love playing my DS," she concluded.

You can contact the Montana Department of Public Health & Human Services for information about adoption and/or fostering at 1-866-9-FOSTER (1-866-936-7837).

Children who are available for adoption through the Child & Family Services Division of the DPHHS have been removed from their own families because of abuse, neglect, or other family problems that make it unsafe for them to remain at home. The rights of their parents have been terminated making the children available for adoption.

Who May Adopt? Either married couples or single adults who have an approved pre-placement evaluation or adoptive home study may adopt in the State of Montana.

How do I get a home study? If you live in Montana, you may begin the process by contacting your county office of Child and Family Services. If you live outside of Montana, contact your state or local office that provide these services.

What about training? Montana Child and Family Services require and provide special training to all of our foster and adoptive parents. The training is offered at various times and places around the State of Montana. If you live in Montana, information is available from your county CFS office. If you live outside of Montana, contact your state or local office that provides these services.
