Children Waiting for Adoption


David is a sweet 7-year old boy.  His infectious smile shows off his charming dimples. David has good eye contact and enjoys engaging with adults and other kids.  David can be silly, laughs easily, and revels in one-on-one attention.  David is independent and likes to try to do most everything himself or with only a little assistance.  He enjoys school and generally does well with instructions and activities. David wears glasses at school, but likes to have a break from them when at home.  You would never know from his slender frame that David has a great appetite and has never met a food he does not like!

David does have special needs and will require a patient and nurturing family that is committed to being his cheerleader, coach, and most importantly, his loving forever family.

Hannah is a creative and artistic 15-year old.  She likes to express herself through writing poetry and making ceramics. She appreciates any activity that she can utilize her creative talents.  Hannah enjoys singing or listening to music and dancing. She describes herself as animated, competitive, and helpful.


Cheyana likes to express her creative side through her hair and make-up. She has a great imagination and is outspoken and articulate.   Like any typical 17-year old, she prefers to spend time with her friends or on a cell phone or tablet.  Other than the social aspects, school is not Cheyana’s favorite place, although she worked hard during her junior year to maintain her grades. She will be a senior this fall.
