Kiki, 14, likes art, writing, and anime

Hi! My name is Krystianna. I like my alone time. I’m an art lover and a fan of anime.

Krystianna, who goes by the nickname Kiki, is a bright, articulate 14-year-old who loves to draw and write poetry and stories. In her vocabulary and with literature, she is somewhat advanced for her age.

With the help of an Individualized Education Program, Krystianna tries her best to succeed in school. She made good grades in completing eighth grade.

She loves animals, especially cats.

Krystianna has not yet been legally freed for adoption. She deserves a permanent home that can provide nurturing, trust, and stability. Her social worker is seeking an understanding family of any constellation who are comfortable and possibly experienced with emotional and mental health issues.

Explore adoption

Attend “The Adoption Option” event and learn more about adopting from foster care on Sunday morning, Sept. 29, from 9 to 11 a.m. at Jordan’s Furniture, 50 Walkers Brook Drive, in Reading.

Prospective adoptive parents, particularly those new to foster care adoption, are invited. Attend an orientation to the adoption process, speak with social workers and experienced adoptive parents, and meet waiting children. There will be fun, games, and refreshments.

To learn more about Krystianna, or to RSVP to the adoption party, call the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) at 617-54-ADOPT (617-542-3678), e-mail web@mareinc.org, or visit www.mareinc.org. The sooner you call, the sooner a waiting child will have “a permanent place to call home.”
