Meet Kiah

Whether you’re a new or old friend, Kiah loves to be close to people. And you’re sure to get a laugh and giggle out of her when she’s being spun around in someone’s arms!


Recent Updates

Kiah has gained more independence recently and we are loving her new-found confidence! She’s bold and daring, showing off by climbing the rainbow in preschool and the tunnels in the playroom. She climbs to the top and giggles as she slides down. We are so proud of her.

Kiah is 9 years old. We so enjoy celebrating the life of this sweet girl. Her love of cupcakes never ceases to entertain us. We are so honored to know and love her. We pray she will soon have the opportunity to be celebrated by a loving family through adoption. She is a treasure.

Kiah has recently grown up so much. She is very cheerful, and we take so much delight in her. She recently experienced the trampoline in physical therapy (which she loves), and has been making fun crafts in preschool. She’s staying busy and is as darling as ever. Thank you for praying for Kiah as she grows. Please also pray that she will have the opportunity to enter the love and nurture of a family through adoption soon.

Kiah was a beautiful angel in our annual Christmas nativity. She is a reminder of the hope and joy of the season, and we are grateful to know and love her. We ask you to join us as we pray for her in this upcoming year!

Kiah loves school, and one of her greatest joys is looking through books. Touch-and-feel books are the kind she enjoys most—feeling the pages with her hands and even with her feet! Watching Kiah discover the sweet world around her makes us abundantly happy.

Kiah’s love for people is infectious. She gives the absolute best hugs—wrapping her arms and legs around you as she squeezes tightly. If you spin her around, she throws her head back and belly laughs until you stop spinning! It is our joy to care for Kiah, and we delight in her sweet hugs!
