After recruiting for Akeelah but not finding the family whose strengths would best meet Akeelah’s needs, her foster parent stepped forward and began the journey to adopt Akeelah herself!

Akeelah’s adoption finalized on April 28th, 2016 in time for her upcoming birthday to be celebrated with her forever family.
