Adopt Lehigh Valley Kids: Lorelei


It's been said life is the art of drawing without an eraser.

"It's calming, it's really calming," said Lorelei.

For 17-year-old Lorelei, art is her life's passion. On Friday, the teen and WFMZ got lessons on drawing the art form of Japanese Anime from Nikki Obertubbesing at Allentown's Baum School of Art.

The teen is one of 2,000 kids across the state in foster care looking for a forever family.

"She loves school, she's a very good learner. She takes her reading very seriously, both in school and outside of school," said case worker Kim Hillman.

That was evident when the topic shifted from art to literature, particularly the Harry Potter series. Lorelei prefers the books over the films.

"They tell you a lot of things the movies don't," said Lorelei.

What WFMZ can tell you about Lorelei is aside from drawing and reading she loves making jewelry, painting and baking.

And Lorelei's talents may come into sharper view as the Baum school offered a special opportunity. A 10-week course. A picture-perfect scene. All that's missing is a family.
