An Energetic Girl Who Lights Up Any Room

Ellie’s smile lights up a room and her kindness is apparent the moment you meet her. An energetic 12-year-old girl in foster care is in need of help finding a forever family to call her own.

“I hope I get adopted soon, so I can have some fun with people.”

Ellie has a lot of love to give. Animals are her favorite and that was clear when she walked around Kaleideum North in Winston-Salem with WXII 12’s Audrey Biesk. Gazing at every exhibit with an animal inside, even the snakes.
