One Church One Child of Florida is a faith-based, 501(c) 3 organization, operating statewide in partnership with the Department of Children and Families and Local Community Based Lead Agencies and their providers to help raise awareness and recruit adoptive and foster families for children in local communities and churches to partner in supporting local children in foster care through Church Watch-Care Ministries.
Over 50 percent of the children who need a permanent family are minorities. The series continues featuring children all over Florida who are waiting in foster care for a forever loving family to call their own. June’s children are highlighted in this article. Continue to pray for them and consider making them a part of your family through adoption or a part of your church through Project Watch-Care, for support and mentoring.
Kayla may be a little shy at first, but once you make a connection with her you’ve got yourself a friend for life. One of Kayla’s defining characteristics is her kind heart, and how she deeply cares for others. She has a fierce loyalty towards her sisters and her friends, and she always tries her best to help them in any way she can.
Kayla is also quite the artist, as well as a fashionista, and when these two strengths are combined, watch out! She has a talent for cosmetics and for creating the perfect outfit, and likes to give advice to anyone who will listen. Kayla looks forward to being in an active and loving home with her big sister.
With her beautiful smile and great sense of humor, Quarnesha lights up a room and attracts friends easily. She takes care to listen to others and makes the people around her feel valued.
Quarnesha enjoys writing and drawing, and like her younger sister she also has a lot of creativity in the style world. In fact, she’s gotten very good at doing other people’s hair. She loves it so much that she thinks that when she grows up she’d like to become a hairdresser—possibly even a famous hairdresser in Paris!
Quarnesha envisions herself in a loving home with her sister, and she thinks it would be fun to have other adoptive siblings as well.
These beautiful, talented girls will thrive in a nurturing, patient home with parents who are engaged in and encouraging of their interests and abilities.
