March Heart Gallery Feature: Meet Katie - 03/21/14
In January, I partnered with the Heart Gallery of Middle Tennessee to feature children and teens on Fox17 looking for their forever family. The response to these segments has been absolutely amazing.
Our March feature is Katie. She is a beautiful and kind 16 year-old with a bright future. Some of her interests include cooking, gymnastics, and spending time outdoors. Currently, she is in ROTC at her high school, but she looks forward to taking a Daycare class next year because she loves spending time with children. She was an absolute joy to spend time with, and I really enjoyed getting to know her while we went on a shopping spree courtesy of RiverGate Mall.
When I plan these segments, I try to find activities that interest the children and teens so they can have fun while we interview them. RiverGate Mall really went above and beyond my expectations for the shoot. The stores showered Katie with gifts and a new spring wardrobe. In addition to that, the employees were exceptionally kind and welcoming and made it a day Katie will never forget.
I'm in the process of planning our April feature and will let you know how the shoot goes. For more information on Katie and how you can become an adoptive parent visit the Heart Gallery of Middle TN Website.
