According to her former foster parent, Malia is sweet, clever, caring, spunky, and fun-loving – just a few of her lovely qualities. In addition, Malia’s former foster parent describes Malia as strong-willed and sensitive, and continually working on learning the best way to navigate her emotions. Malia has learned a lot in the past few years, and will continue to do so with the love and care of a permanent home and family.
Malia’s energy and attitude provide joy to the people around her. She is pleasant to be around, with her sense of humor and eagerness to connect with the people in her life. Malia is a super creative kid who is really drawn to arts and crafts, as well as tangible hobbies like baking and sewing. These activities all provide Malia with the creative space and support to patiently follow directions to achieve the outcome she’s hoping for. And, of course, it’s fun!
Currently in the 5th grade, Malia does well in school, especially with the extra support she receives from her teacher and mentor. Malia works hard in school and even participates in a reading program during one of her free spaces during the school day.
Malia has a close relationship with her biological sister and would appreciate an adoptive family who will support that bond throughout her life.
An adoptive family who is patient, consistent, and kind, yet firm will be the best fit for Malia. Positive encouragement means a lot to her and she responds well to open conversations, especially when it comes to the rules and regulations of the house. Malia is a happy kid who is super excited to connect with others. She will do well with a single mom or two moms, or a mom and dad couple where she can be the only child or the youngest of older siblings.
Malia is a great kid who deserves the right adoptive family. We’re excited to find that for her.
