(FOX 11) - Mayalove (2010) is an outgoing and adventurous girl. She gets excited over many things: turning 8 years old this summer, having created a stunning craft project, reading an absolutely interesting book. Such enthusiasm warranted a visit to Kidspace Children's Museum in Pasadena. Kidspace's environment for creative and interactive learning allowed Mayalove to shine at her best. Mayalove went straight to the Book Club Clubhouse, a part of the museum's STEAMing Through Summer Initiative. At the clubhouse, Mayalove happily made her own bookmark and read books.
Throughout the afternoon, Mayalove enthusiastically interacted with others and shared some of her favorite life moments; spending time with friends (quite a long list of the names of her friends), learning math in class and participating in athletic activities. If an activity includes riding bikes, gymnastics, or swimming, Mayalove is a willing participant - she's a fan of it all! Mayalove is quick to smile and jump into actions - which she does with confidence and flair. On the day of the Wednesday's Child taping, Mayalove thought nothing of using the Fox News 11 microphone to start asking the questions to our own Christine Devine!
Even at her young age, Mayalove has already experienced many challenges and losses. Nothing would please Mayalove more than to be included in everyday activities from helping to make the meals to being read to every night before going to bed. It's these everyday simple acts that will reassure Mayalove that she is accepted and loved unconditionally. Mayalove will thrive with a forever family that can help guide and support her as she heals and overcomes her past trauma and losses.
