Family Description

Hello, My name is Tiera. I am a single mom and foster mom. I have two bio children and one foster child. We love spending time together after a long crazy day. We have family movie/ game night every Friday. We know how to be an active family, going on day trips and to the park. We also know how to be couch potatoes, making living room forts and having pizza. We are ready to welcome a new addition to our family.

Preference Description

We are looking to adopt a girl between the ages of 1 and 9 years old, of any ethnic background. We are willing to accept minor medical conditions or a child with special needs such as PTSD, attachment, learning, or developmental delays.

The Cayen- Family Profile

My family would love to take in a little girl or a sibling group with girls. Ages newborn to 10 years old. We are a mixed family, so any race is welcome.


I am a single mom and foster mom. I have two bio sons and a foster daughter. I am a high school history teacher. My family loves to eat, go to the park, or take a day trip. We have movie night every Friday.

Home and Community

Our community is full of little kids. We life across the street from a big park and field where they play soccer and football games on the weekend. There are many schools in the area.

Parenting Experience

I am the oldest of four children and the oldest of ten grandchildren. I have been around children my entire life. I was a nanny, worked in a daycare, and I am currently a teacher. I love helping children grow at all stages of life. I have two Master degrees in education.


I have a great family support system. I have a mother, two sisters, aunts, and grandparents. They all live within 30 minutes.

Motivation to Adopt

I am very committed to the challenges that may come up. I am not quitting on something that I want. Quitting is not an option.
