Grant Me Hope: Omarayana


She might be young, but is quite sophisticated for her age.  “She tends to gravitate toward older peers as she enjoys having more mature conversations,” says a close adult acquaintance of Omarayana. Then there’s her career choice. Instead of wanting to be a veterinarian or police officer like a lot of youth her age, Omarayana wants to become an interior designer. She’s still a kid to the core, however. Omarayana loves playing volleyball and GaGa ball, the variation of Dodgeball. She loves making art and doing other creative activities, which will serve her well in her interior design pursuits. Omarayana likes the color purple. Most of all, she loves spending time with her siblings.

A forever family for Omaryana must be willing to adopt her sibling Mikel. The children would do best with two experienced and trauma-informed parents. The children would benefit from having at least one mom in the home. Their new parents must advocate for the services that will help Omarayana and Mikel excel. Their new forever family needs to be patient and understanding as the children transition into their new home. Finally, Omarayana and Mikel would do best as the only children in their new home.
