Mikeala, 7, is a sweet girl who loves school – especially reading! Her foster mom, Chelsea Alfred, says that homework is “never a battle of wills” with Mikeala. She’s a friendly, happy child who loves to help out, adds Chelsea. “She’s always asking me, ‘Nanny, you want me to do this? You want me to do that?’ So I will miss her presence being around.”
When Mikeala grows up, she wants to be a police officer. “I want to bring bad guys to jail,” she says. Though Mikeala is dreading the day she has to leave her foster family, she is looking forward to becoming a permanent member of a family.
