About Saphira

Saphira loves school – reading and math are her favorite subjects – and she wants to be a doctor when she grows up, so she can give people checkups and make sure that they’re healthy. Other interests include cheerleading, dance, basketball and dogs.

“I have three puppies: Lola, Sunshine and Fluffy,” says Saphira excitedly. “They can do tricks!”

When she’s not at school, Saphira likes playing tag and hide-and-go-seek with her friends, who she says would describe her as smart, friendly and energetic. She also likes spending time in church and at her after-school program. Given three wishes, she’d ask to be rich and a good singer, and to “make everyone happy.”

This very special girl is looking for a forever family that’s just as excited to welcome her into a loving home as she is to be a part of one.

“And please tell them that I love being the center of attention!” she says.
