Zoie is excited to share some of her story through our In-Depth Profiles, a NWAE project that empowers youth to speak directly to potential adoptive families. Learn more about In-Depth Profiles.

Learning to play: Clarinet
Always up for: Singing and dancing
Favorite games: Uno and Monopoly
Looking for: An adoptive family

Super chatty and very sweet, especially once you’ve built up a good rapport with her, Zoie is an awesome kid looking for a permanent home and family. Super friendly, Zoie is very kind to other kids and adults.

Currently in the 6th grade, she gets along with her peers well which is unsurprising considering the qualities we’ve shared about her so far. At school, Zoie enjoys learning about histories and likes reading, but only sometimes. Zoie enjoys reading and has recently been diving into and loving the Junie B. Jones book series.

For fun, Zoie likes to get outside and stay active. Playing outside is a favorite thing to do, and she’s not picky about the activity as long as it’s outside. When indoors, Zoie is always up for a board game night, especially if it’s Monopoly. You can also often find her rooting for the Seattle Seahawks on game day. As far as indoor activities go, Zoie is happy to curl up with her tablet and play some of her favorite games. Her current favorite game to play on her tablet is Talking Angela, a game about cats!

When asked what kind of family Zoie is looking for, she mentions that a family who likes to play outdoors would be great. She adds that she likes animals but not farm animals and would like for there to be other kids in the home, though she’s flexible about that. Even though she’s eager to be adopted, Zoie wants families to know she’d like to continue having a relationship with her older sister.

If you can see Zoie in your family, please reach out. We’re excited to find her the outdoorsy adoptive family she deserves.

Beyond the Profile: Zoie is such a caring, thoughtful youth. Throughout all the stages of her project, she has enjoyed collaborating with and hearing from the people in her life that she cares about most. As the staff who has gotten to know her more through this process, I've seen the innate joy Zoie has and her true ability to light up every room she walks into! Whether it's dancing, singing, showing off her new clarinet—she is sure to keep you engaged about the things she's excited about. The best part here: We're not done! Zoie still has a few things she wants to share with potential adoptive families, so stay tuned as we continue to update her profile with all of the things that she loves.
