There are a few things Keyaisa would like her future adoptive family to know. First of all, her favorite holiday is Christmas – partially because of the food and partially because of the gifts. She would like to add that she would love her own bedroom, but more importantly, family dinners are a must. But above all else, Keyaisa wants families to know that she is more than ready and super excited to join a loving and caring home.

Keyaisa wanted to teach potential adoptive families about something she loves... making slime!

It should be known that Keyaisa always finds the joy in the small things in life. When asked what her favorite thing is, she simply states that it would be the chance to spend time with a family. Keyaisa is vibrant, creative, playful, thoughtful, and super outgoing. For fun, she enjoys shopping, going out to eat, or making slime – something she has a real knack for.

Keyaisa is really talented and enjoys the chance to play around writing stories, singing (which she is great at), making others laugh, and just generally being fun. Keyaisa really values the opportunity to spend time with people who equally enjoy her company. Now in 8th grade, Keyaisa makes strong, positive connections with staff at her school. She is motivated and intelligent and is proud of her grades. Keyaisa does really well one-on-one and is currently working on building relationships in school. Her favorite subjects? Math and science.

Keyaisa has a close relationship with her biological brother and would like to maintain that relationship. An adoptive family who will support that bond will be essential.

Motivated and inquisitive, Keyaisa is really adept at processing and reflecting her feelings. An adoptive family who can continue to help her build her skill set for the future would be a great addition to her life.

Keyaisa really wants to be adopted. She would do well in a family with a strong maternal presence – a single mom or two moms, though her social worker would like to hear from all families. She would do best in a home where she can be the only child or youngest of older siblings. Parents who are compassionate and able to listen to what Keyaisa needs would be a great fit for her. Overall, Keyaisa wants a warm, welcoming home.

If you can envision Keyaisa in your family, reach out to us! We are excited to find her the adoptive family she deserves.

Keyaisa also made a video for A Family for Me, courtesy of Holt International. Because the video is hosted by KING5 News, an ad might play before viewing.

Beyond the Profile: Keyaisa is such a spirited youth, and it was nothing but a pleasure to help her bring forward the parts of her life that she wished to share with potential adoptive families. My favorite part was how she went quickly from saying hello to me, to getting out all her Slime ingredients that were all neatly prepared in advance and saying, "Okay let's do the Slime Video at the table." She was ready to teach! I loved getting to share in her enthusiasm for creating something fun like slime and showing that to families. We were having a total blast! And I know her bright personality shows thorough that wonderful idea she had. I hope that all parts of Keyaisa’s In-Depth Profile help the right family to reach out and start to make the connection.
