Akiemah is from Indiana and is 11 years old. She has a big smile that lights up a room, Akiemah is a great kid with a funny sense of humor. She likes to stay active, preferring to ride her bike, rollerblade or play basketball and likes football as well. The more active she can be, the better! Music is very important to Akiemah – if she could, she’d have the radio on all day…and probably be singing along! When she grows up saving animals or being a police officer are on her list!

As with most children, consistency will be important when it comes to new routines. Parents will have to be persistent about building up a level of trust with Akiemah, in a family that is calm, understanding, and creates structure where she can thrive. “Belonging” to Akiemah is defined as being comfortable. Can you help Akiemah feel comfortable and have a sense of belonging? For more information please contact Denise Donaldson, Adoption Consultant [email protected]
