Those who know Jackalyn best describe her as a happy-go-lucky kid! She enjoys learning new things and works hard at the things she wants to achieve. In her free time, Jackalyn enjoys watching movies, jumping on a trampoline, and playing card and board games. Doing her makeup and shopping are two of her other interests. Jackalyn favors Mexican foods and is drawn to the color pink.

This eighth grader does very well in school and is a member of the National Honors Society. Jackalyn has positive relationships with the adults and peers in her life and enjoys spending her time with those she cares about.

A two-parent family is preferred; however, her caseworker will consider all family types. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.


For Missouri children, homestudied and non-homestudied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.
