This friendly and happy teen is Aaliyah! Getting to know others is always a good time for this girl, and she has strong bonds with the adults in her life. Aaliyah always tries to make sure others are included during activities and does well with younger children. Playing outside by herself or with friends brings a smile to her face. She enjoys singing and twirling around when she dances. Aaliyah is also talented at playing instruments and adores music. While she enjoys most foods, she is known to have a sweet tooth. Pink, red and blue are her top color choices, and if she had superpowers, she would choose flying. Aaliyah aspires to become a doctor when she’s older.

She enjoys attending school as a tenth grader.

Aaliyah would do best in a Christian family, in which she can be the youngest child in the home; however, her caseworker will consider all family types. Her caseworker says, “having a family who can love her, and she loves them is her dream.” 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.
