Kiki is a happy, silly, creative 13 year-old girl. She is often described as a “phenomenal artist” and would spend all day drawing or painting if given the opportunity! Kiki enjoys singing and dancing and would eventually like to join her school choir or band. Kiki enjoys staying active during the warmer months by biking and would like to join a basketball or soccer team. Some of Kiki’s favorites include Takis, Chinese food, and the color red. Kiki enjoys joking with those around her and making others smile.
Kiki is very willing to be adopted! She is open to the race, sexuality, and gender of her adoptive parent(s), though openly admits she would like to have a father figure. Kiki is open to living anywhere in the state of Minnesota. Kiki would do best in a home with no other youth. Kiki would love to live in a home with dogs or tarantulas, but not with cats (due to allergies) or snakes (due to choice)! The right family for Kiki will parent using patience, positive praise and reinforcement, and by including her in decisions.
That every young person whose life has been disrupted by trauma and subsequent child welfare intervention will be restored to a safe, permanent family with an urgency that honors the brevity of childhood.
