MEET Jayla
Jayla is a fun-loving, energetic young girl with a bubbly personality. Although she has a tough outer shell, once she warms up, her contagious personality shines through. Jayla likes listening to country music, playing on her tablet, and watching Netflix. Her favorite shows are “Pretty Little Liars” and “All Hail King Julian.” She also likes the outdoors, riding her bike, playing basketball, running and swimming at the local YMCA. Jayla describes herself as a picky eater, as she does not like it when her food touches other food on her plate! Her favorite foods are tacos, vegetables, and corn on the cob. She enjoys helping out around the house and often volunteers to take the garbage to the curb, but she absolutely hates pulling weeds! Jayla loves to socialize with her peers, but sometimes needs extra reminders to use kind words and think of others' feelings. In her forever home, she would love the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities like dance, gymnastics or youth groups to help strengthen her social skills and keep her active in the community. Jayla is looking for a family to love and support her in the home and school setting. Although she achieves good grades, she needs that extra motivation from a family to help her stay focused and keep up with assignments. She would do best as an only child in a single female family where she is able to receive the extra love and support needed to thrive in a home setting. She has hopes and dreams for her future and would love nothing more than to have a family to be by her side through all of life's milestones! Jayla is not legally free for adoption, however when a permanent resource is identified, the county will enact final steps to terminate parental rights.
