These siblings are being advocated for separately—meaning we need to find three loving homes for them to join. However, their adoptive families must commit to maintaining frequent contact between the siblings so that they can continue to have a relationship.

Makayla is an energetic, fun, 12-year-old girl! She is quiet when you first meet her and opens up as you gain her trust! She enjoys playing outside, swimming, biking, karate and playing basketball! Makayla also enjoys hip hop music, movies and cartoons. She has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh.
Makayla would do best in a two-parent family that could provide structure and positive encouragement. She would benefit from being the youngest child in the home and joining a family that has a dog. Her adoptive family will also have to maintain contact with Makayla’s siblings.
