Yajaira (2004), who prefers to be called “Yaya” is a lovely teen growing up in foster care who wishes to have a safe, permanent and unconditionally loving family of her own. This very introspective and reflective teen has an old soul, and when given the opportunity, she jumps at the chance to advocate for herself to find a family that can reciprocally be a good fit. We had Yaya walk the red carpet at Doris Bergman’s 10th Annual Luxury Lounge & Party honoring the Emmy Awards last month where she was gifted as our celebrity. Here is her story.
