    My story is one made for the movies. I was abandoned at birth and spent the first 14 months of my life in an orphanage. My forever mom and dad found me on an adoption ministry website and came to get me in 2010. My mom and dad loved taking pictures of me and my career began to take off! Last year I modeled for Matilda Jane Clothing and Plaid Buttercup and can often be seen on Zulily. I have also had an acting part of ABC Family’s Switched at Birth and I was in several Target commercials!
