Jasmine also loves movies including the Twilight series and the Lion King.
"I like Disney movies with a whole bunch of cartoons. I just like being a child."
Jasmine has been in foster care in 2009 and she is excited about finding her forever family. Jasmine says it's really important to her that she is adopted by a family where she can feel she is actually part of the family, and not just an extra person in the home. And she wants to maintain contact with her younger brother.
"Just being accepted period and not having to change my personality and just having a good time," Jasmine.
And this little girl hopes a family will find her soon, and show her the Gift of Love.
