My apologies to any of the top 5 that I was not able to contact personally, but I tried calling or emailing each of you. Voting will take place like last time, where you each can have one vote (only way to keep it fair). The voting will go until Saturday at 5 pm. Winner will be announced on Monday!
Here are the entries that made it into the Top 5 Teen Make You Over Makeover Contest....
Genevieve (Genny) is 15 years old Genny came to live with us January 12, 2010. She was pulled from her families care for some very extreme reasons. Genny was living with a mother who was/is a drug addict. Her mother was allowing homeless people to come in and out of her home. On many occasions Genny would wake with homeless people standing over her watching her sleep. Genny's father died in 2007 leaving her with her mother who was clearly not capable of caring for her. Genny started using drugs, only attending school 1 day a week at the most. She was on truancy and headed for detention. Genny found a homeless man in her basement doing drugs and other unimaginable things. Genny called CPS. Thankfully CPS placed her in our care. When Genny came to live with us she had gorgeous red hair that she dyed black, roots showing,eye brow, piercing, lip piercing and gages in her ears. She was wearing Gothic looking clothes. Genny switched schools and decided time for a change. Genny has made a 150% improvement. Genevieve is now attending school everyday and passing her classes, removed all piercings, and ditched the Gothic look. Genny really wants a girly look. Genny wants to be adopted. We love Genny and want to adopt her if the courts allow. We have had 63 children in our home in 4.5 years. Genny is by far the best child we have ever had in our home and truly deserves this make over with everything she has gone through and all the changes she has made on her own.
