A Loving Home

A Loving Home: Amber

Greenville, N.C. (WNCT) - Greenville, N.C. (WNCT) - Greenville, N.C. (WNCT) - WNCT 9 On Your Side is partnering with the Children's Home Society of North Carolina for an adoption series we're calling "A Loving Home."

Every Tuesday at 5 p.m. Anchor Angie Quezada will profile a different child looking for a family to call their own.


Sixteen-year-old Amber has a gentle, caring personality and dreams of sharing those qualities in her future career. Amber says she thinks of others before she thinks of herself.

Justin Welch is her case worker and has been working with Amber for several months now.

"Amber is the sweetest kid, she's kind, she's very gentle, she's thoughtful, and she's very helpful," says Welch.

Her desire to help others is a priority for Amber.

Amber says, "You just don't know what they're going through, you don't know how their day is."

Amber's willingness to help others has been recognized by many people.

"I've talked to a couple of teachers that have taken a special liking to her because of her generous spirit, she helps with kids that are handicap at her high school," says Welch.

Amber hopes these strong qualities will be put to us in her future career as a daycare worker.

"She's looking forward to volunteering with the special Olympics as well, to help those kids," Welch adds.

Amber also loves being outdoors and animals. 

The ideal family for amber would be a family who gives her stability, support, and honest love.

"She would do well with a single woman, or a husband and a wife, or even maybe a same sex couple. She wouldn't mind having siblings, explains Welsh.
