Sunday’s Child is Nizia, 12

Hi! My name is Nizia. I love telling jokes!

Nizia is a bright and friendly 12-year-old who has a smile for everyone he meets.

Outgoing and with a great personality, Nizia loves being around people. He enjoys skateboarding, wrestling, dancing and playing video games. He also has a budding passion for the creative arts, through which he showcases his sense of humor.

Nizia receives extra academic support in some of his seventh-grade subjects, along with behavioral support, but both students and teachers enjoy having Nizia around to make them laugh. Nizia’s demeanor would bring so much to the lives of an adoptive family.


Nizia’s social worker is open to all family constellations. This sweet and sociable boy is just looking for a home that will offer him a sense of belonging. An ideal family will be open to keeping Nizia in contact with his sister.
