Keisha is a smart, kind and well-behaved 18-year-old with a great sense of humor. Patient and nurturing, she likes to help people and especially enjoys working with children. Because of this, Keisha would like to attend college and then pursue a career as a nurse.
If Keisha could have three wishes, they would be to have a mentor who would help her to apply to, and succeed in, nursing school; to have a laptop computer; and to own a car. More immediate goals include overcoming her shyness and learning to style her hair.
Keisha does very well in school and her report cards are filled with As and Bs. English and science are her favorite subjects. She is enrolled in kickboxing classes, which she feels improves her social skills and helps her make new friends. Reading and listening to music are therapeutic in helping her deal with the many losses and disappointments she has experienced.
Keisha would thrive with an adoptive family that is supportive, kind, patient and loving to help her reach her considerable potential. The family could be two-parent or just a mom. Because of her gift of working with children, she would do well with younger children in the family. Keisha would bring joy to the family that welcomes her into their home. She is close to her older and sister and niece and the relationships should be maintained.
