Fun and games and puzzles galore!Mackaya (8909C)
Got a pair of sevens? Well, Go Fish! Mackaya can get lost in a good game, and enjoys playing cards, or board games like Chutes & Ladders, Candyland and Battleship. If there’s a puzzle, she wants to solve it!
Mackaya is a happy-go-lucky kid who loves to stay active outside! She likes to go swimming and even enjoys the occasional camping trip. But, Mackaya’s also just as happy staying inside playing with her Barbies and other dolls. She’s currently working on her ABC’s, shapes, and colors — and she loves to show off what she’s learned. (By the way, her favorite colors are pink, purple, and blue!)
Being the center of attention comes easily for Mackaya, and she will dance around or tell you all the funny jokes she knows. Want to sing a song? Perfect — so does Mackaya, and she’s got a lot of favorite songs to teach you! She may be quick to tell a joke or sing, but she’s also quick to share and make sure those she cares about are taken care of. What’s she most likely to share? Her favorite food (pepperoni pizza), and maybe if you’re lucky, you’ll even get a bite of her Oreo Blizzard from Dairy Queen!
Mackaya would do well in a two-parent family or a single-parent home with plenty of support. If there are other children in the home, they should be older than Mackaya and able to serve as good role models. Mackaya is close to her sister, who is placed in Indiana, and would like a family who lives close enough for her to visit with her sister on a regular basis. Potential adoptive families should understand that the relationship with her older sister is an important connection for Mackaya and should be encouraged.
She likes animals and would love to have a pet, as long as she has appropriate supervision. Mackaya would benefit from a family that makes time to do activities together, and takes a genuine interest in the things she enjoys. A family that can see and honor her strengths while also providing structure, support, and routine would be ideal. Parents should understand the impact trauma can have on children.
