Anjelika is interested in "girly things" and enjoys spending time with her foster mom on anything this encompasses. This sweet, charismatic lass plays with dolls, colors and creates artworks of various kinds. She loves jewelry! Swimming and biking are ways she exercises. Bright Anjelika is in the fifth grade, where she enjoys the time with her peers. One-on-one time is important to her. She benefits from counseling and an IEP (Individualized Education Plan), which will need to continue after placement. The caseworker prefers a single-mother or two-parent family where Anjelika can be an only child; however, all family types will be considered. This is a child who needs consistent and dedication and a strong, structured home with a balance of nurturing. She needs an experienced family who is deeply committed to her. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services. For New Mexico children, both homestudied and non-homestudied New Mexico families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.

Ted Nugent has blasted Dee Snider for comments the Twisted Sister frontman made in a recent interview.
Snider told Noisecreep, "Ted's always been a gun-toting conservative. But what gets me is that he was actually a draft dodger! I mean, to the point where he didn't bathe for a week, and vomited on himself to deliberately avoid the draft. I totally understand why he did that, but all of these Republicans who love Ted don't seem to know or remember that too well."
Nugent took to his Twitter to write, "Shame on Dee Snider for falling for the big lie. I challenge you to man up to the truth. We expected better."
Snider is referring to a 1977 interview with High Times where Nugent described how he got out of the Vietnam draft. Nugent has since disavowed the interview, claiming that he had a student deferment and that he'd made up the story. Snopes later discovered that Nugent did have a deferment, but it expired in 1968. He failed a physical a year later and was classified 1-Y -- "qualified for service only in time of war or national emergency" -- which was changed to 4-F in 1971. There's no record on how he failed, so we can't say which version is correct.
