    Lillian is a 16-year-old girl that has been in the foster care system for close to 3 years. Adoption specialist Tracy Holloway says, "she gets along well with others, she’s considerate and kind... she likes to laugh and have fun”. When we met her at the salon to get her hair, nails, and make-up done, she claimed that she was a little shy. We quickly learned that she was more outgoing than she described.

    This is our first time that we have featured a kid twice on "A Family For Me". Austin was also featured last year with his two sisters. Since we first met them, the courts have separated all three siblings to make it easier to find permanent homes for all three of them.
