Markell, Mya, Makiyla, Maliyah, and Michael have hearts full of hopes and dreams and cannot wait to share with their forever family. This sibling group of five really enjoys playing outdoors and watching television in their spare time. They also enjoy going to the park, watching movies, and playing board games. At times, if one child begins to have an outburst, the other children will follow their lead. However, all of them do well with re-direction and time outs. All five of the children attend supportive services and are benefiting from those services and support. Markell, Mya, Makiyla, Maliyah, and Michael enjoy being in the same foster home so they are able to interact with each other on a regular basis.

Makiyla will benefit from a nurturing family who will provide her with attention, love, and affection. The ideal family will ensure Mya continues to participate in supportive services to help her adjust and deal with issues of her past. Patience and positive redirection from the family will be helpful when behavioral issues arise. A family who has a strong desire to adopt Makiyla and her four siblings is needed. A family who will provide individual and group attention to the children will be best. Makiyla needs a family who will establish rules and expect Makiyla to follow the rules. The family's ability to help redirect Makiyla when she has difficulty focusing will be a plus. Makiyla will benefit from a family who can her with achieving her educational milestones. A family who will allow Makiyla to be independent but still provide supervision and support, is needed. The ideal family will preserve Makiyla's culture and interests.
