Eeka McLeod’s journey to building her family began when she made the decision to pursue her dream of adopting a child. After becoming a licensed foster parent while in graduate school, she started welcoming children into her home. Throughout her time fostering, Eeka cared for 18 children and eventually adopted three with disabilities: Eli, Evan and Ella.

The self-described “family of misfits'' has made a name for themselves on social media during the pandemic with unapologetically real, hilarious content that showcases the triumphs and challenges of their daily life. Their devoted fanbase includes 126 million likes and 2.5 million followers on TikTok, over 108,000 followers on Instagram, as well as over 164 million views and over 241,000 subscribers on YouTube. Eeka is passionate about using the family’s platform to advocate for acceptance for the LGBTQ+ community and people with disabilities. Six year-old Evan, who is queer, has become a social media star in her own right thanks to her love of wearing long dresses and colorful hairstyles. Her story has garnered coverage from well-known media outlets including the Today Show, CBS News and Out Magazine to name a few.
