Jasmine Wants To Serve Her Country, Backed By A Forever Family

Posted: Updated:

Jasmine (1997) is a confident young lady with a good self-image and a positive outlook on life. She knows what she wants and articulates it well. Like many teens, Jasmine enjoys listening to music and hanging out with friends; but she also has some specific future goals in mind – including the goal of serving her country as a medical corpsman with the Navy.

Jasmine seems to already grasp the importance of self-care as well, and with that in mind we headed off to "More Than a Slash Salon" in Santa Monica for some pampering. Here owner Carla Ross was on hand to assist in giving Jasmine a fresh new look.

Jasmine has had her share of challenges, but through hard effort and a keen resiliency she has developed an overall positive manner. Jasmine is college bound and participates in her school's ROTC program. Jasmine would like to be part of a permanent family, but shared that she sometimes struggles with the issues around being adopted. We hope to help identify a family that will show Jasmine what being part of an adoptive family is really about – belonging, knowing where and with whom your "home" is, having a place where you can be yourself and be surrounded by those who love you for you unconditionally, regardless of other circumstances.

    The recent 'Blood Moon' total lunar eclipse was an amazing stargazer event. But FOX 11 Viewer Michael Udelson took a picture that blew me away. So I asked him for some Photography tips on these events.
