McKaela is an amazing teen with varied interests that just may make her a wonderful addition to your family! She loves reading poetry; listening to music; watching Tik-Tok videos; traveling to fun places like the Oregon Coast; celebrating holidays with family and doing art projects. Sharing a meal that includes her favorite foods like spaghetti, spicy Korean noodles and Taco Bell is also a sure-fire way to spend some quality time together! McKaela considers her great hair and her funny personality to be two of her best traits! She loves anything related to hair and make-up and has big plans to someday become a cosmetologist. Like most teens her age, McKaela is also super excited about the possibility of learning to drive soon!
McKaela and her Permanency Team describe the best fit in a family for her as a home with two parents who have ample time available to spend one on one with her, helping her to prepare for young adulthood and a successful future. A fun and easygoing family, who also parent with a lot of structure, clear boundaries and expectations would be an excellent fit. McKaela describes wanting a family who is dedicated to including her in the family and prioritizing her, but also understands that she sometimes needs to have alone time and space if she’s feeling overwhelmed.
McKaela’s team is primarily interested in hearing from Idaho families, particularly those residing in the Treasure Valley area, who have significant trauma knowledge and will value supporting her ongoing connection with her younger siblings. If you feel that your family may be the right one for this wonderful teen, we encourage you to inquire about McKaela today!
