We continue our series Tuesday's Kids.
It's an effort to find a forever home for the hundreds of children in Southwest Virginia still searching.
Tonight we want to share a success story with you!
Vanessa recently celebrated her 6th birthday with her new family.
According to DePaul Community Resources, her adoption has not yet been finalized, but she is now placed with her family.
They expect her adoption to be finalized next year.
Vanessa loves her new school and is popular with the teachers, and is making lots of new friends.
She says she loves her new family very much, including her new dog, and her princess themed room!
There are many other children just like Vanessa still searching, and you can help out.
Just go to the DePaul Community Resources website, at www.depaulcr.org or you can call them at (540) 265-8923.
