Kanisa reports, “I like to watch television, especially cartoons.” She is a funny, friendly girl with a great personality. Kanisa likes to participate in the choir through the church she currently attends. She likes to talk and can be affectionate with others. Kanisa also likes to dance and entertain others. Kanisa says that she likes all different types of food, especially McDonald’s and mashed potatoes. Her favorite movie is the animated version of 101 Dalmatians. When Kanisa grows up she would like to become a doctor at a hospital – but she would prefer to be a “Princess Doctor.” Kanisa is a loving girl and is learning how to be respectful of others’ personal space.  Kanisa does experience some medical issues on a fairly consistent basis and benefits from a very consistent schedule and routine to help effectively manage her needs.  At school she benefits from additional assistance in her studies and with strengthening her speech. Kanisa is warming up to the idea of finding her forever family. Kanisa has asked for an adoptive family that likes to cook, because despite her tiny frame, she LOVES to eat!  The adoptive family should have knowledge or experience parenting children with medical needs as it will be important for Kanisa’s well-being. Additionally, the family must work with Kanisa to help her adjust to a new family environment. It will be important for the adoptive family to be strong advocates for Kanisa in the community and in the school environment. Kanisa has a relationship with her other siblings that should be maintained after she is adopted.

To adopt Kanisa or any other child with special needs, please contact Adopt America Network at 1-800-246-1731 or email us at adoption@adoptamericanetwork.org We’re waiting to hear from you.
