Victoria is just 11 years old, but she already has her eyes set on some big goals.

First on the list—find a forever family. Victoria currently lives in foster care and wants to join a big family more than anything.

After just a few minutes of playing at Austin's Park, you realized Victoria is not a quitter. At just 11, she’s already endured more than most children, but she doesn’t let it bring her down.

“I want to be a nurse or a police officer,” she said. “I want to help people, get better and I care about people that are sick, and I don't want anybody hurting anyone else."

At times, Victoria's life has felt unstable, but she hopes the spinning will stop soon and she'll continue the ride with a forever family.

"I'd feel happy and excited to have a real mom and a real dad, sisters, and brother, and just kind of be a usual kid," she said.

Victoria's favorite subject is math and she loves animals.
