LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Time and again, we've shared with you stories of abandoned, abused, and neglected children, left behind for the state to care for.
Through THV11's partnership with the Arkansas Department of Human Services, our effort is to help find these children forever homes.
In the case of a 17-year-old, life comes full circle in this story, except one thing is missing: a family to call her own.

"I thought they were precious," Sierra said with a smile at the Humane Society of Pulaski County.

A pup named Franklin and a kitten named Vida have Sierra's full attention. This is the only place she wants to be.
"I really love horses, cats, dogs, all of the above," Sierra told us.
