Shannon is a high school junior. But instead of being worried about football games and homework, her biggest concern is finding a permanent home.
Shannon hopes someone will hear her story and bring her home.
"She is so sweet and shy," says adoption specialist Monica Spencer. "And she has the prettiest smile."
Shannon has an interest in computers and technology, so this week, we arranged a tour of the THV studios. It is a much different experience from what she's used to at her group foster home.
"It's like residential treatment," says Shannon. "And all the girls, 13 girls, they come in with different behaviors."
Shannon's behavior is admittedly not the best. She says she has a tendency to argue and get mad. And she's learned first-hand the consequences.
"It's like my behavior moves me from place to place," she says.
