What do 8 year old girls like? My friend who is a foster parent got an 8 year old girl last night. The girl came with nothing, not even shoes or a coat. She is spending the weekend purchasing a winter wardrobe for her but she says the little girl wants nothing. She has no preferences or opinions. When she asked about Christmas, the girl told her there was no Santa. She said she didnt want anything. It is so sad. Of course, my friend will be buying gifts. She wants to buy a good quality African American doll, maybe an AG doll. Doesnt know what else to buy. She has already bought gifts for her bio kids (all teens) and they have 6-8 gifts each so she wants to make sure this child has as many or more gifts. Any suggestions?
