This helpful and loving child is Jahkaiya! If the music is pumping, you can be sure that this dancing queen is grooving to the tunes. When Jahkaiya isn’t busting a move, playing with dolls and stuffed animals is a top priority on her fun list. She is fond of others her age and gets along well with adults. For mealtime pizza, spaghetti, and chicken are her top choices.

Jahkaiya is in the third grade.

She would do best in a family without young children; however, her caseworker will consider all family types. Jahkaiya would like to remain in contact with her siblings and other family members following placement. 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.

For more information on becoming an adoptive family, please email or call 800-554-2222.
