Markayla is an active teen with a mega-watt smile and sparkling eyes. Though shy at times, she knows when to open up! Listening to music, drawing and journaling are favorite activities for this youth. With hopes of breaking into the fashion industry someday, Markayla is interested in all things fashion and takes pride in her appearance. This ninth grader does very well with written expression and currently benefits from an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) and counseling, which will need to continue following placement. The caseworker prefers a two-parent or single mother family where Markayla can be the youngest or only child; however, all family types will be considered. Markayla would like to be adopted by a family who will allow her to have ongoing contact with biological family members. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services. For Missouri children, both homestudied and non-homestudied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.
