PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Fourteen-year-old Elizabeth loves expressing herself through music.

“I play the guitar, the flute, and some piano,” she says shyly.

Plus she loves dance, fashion, sports, and creating artworks.

“I do pencil, and most of what I do is out of pastels — chalk pastels — and paint. I kind of just started it myself,” she tells Wednesday’s Child.

Elizabeth wants to be a cosmetologist or a hip-hop choreographer when she grows up.  Her social worker, Karen Knodel, says Elizabeth needs a laid-back family.

“A family that won’t sweat the small stuff,” Knodel says, “that it won’t matter what color hair she comes in with, what new peircing she has.”

She just needs a family that will love her for the talented young woman she is.
