Meet Leilani, who has compassion for others! The kind teen loves caring for animals, especially dogs, and hopes to become a veterinarian when she’s older. Leilani has a great sense of humor and gets along well with peers and adults. Chicken and ice cream are her favorite foods, and she prefers the color blue.

Leilani is doing well in her tenth-grade year.

She would do best in a two-parent Christian family, with pets in the home, in which she can be the only child; however, her caseworker will consider all family types. Leilani will need to remain in contact with her grandparents 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.
