Abigail & Jose

Abigail and Jose have a fun, creative and loving sibling relationship. They get along, are both active and playful and they do well with sharing with one another!
Right now, Abigail and Jose are not placed in the same foster home, but they do have weekly visits with one another and their other 3 siblings, which is just as exciting as it sounds. Abigail and Jose are looking to be adopted together into a loving home with their forever family.

Abigail is an outgoing ten-year-old Hispanic girl and in fourth grade. She is described as a happy, smart, inquisitive, friendly girl. She enjoys playing soccer, softball, yoga, swimming, riding her bike, jumping on the trampoline, and gymnastics. Abigail is active in Girl Scouts and Girls on the Run. Her favorite toys are Legos, crafts, and slime. She is not a picky eater. Some of her favorite foods include tacos, pizza, and macaroni and cheese. About the only food she dislikes is broccoli. Abigail’s top pick movies are Dolphin Tails, Matilda, Trolls and Sing. She is a good student and works hard.

Jose is an active nine-year-old Hispanic boy and in third grade. He is described as energetic, creative, helpful, competitive, and smart. He describes himself as “nice, respectful, and good at sharing.” Jose enjoys baseball, soccer, football, swimming, and ice skating. He loves Spiderman, trains, and Legos. His favorite places are Chuck E Cheese, Incredible Pizza, and McDonalds. Jose is not a picky eater; he eats a variety of food including vegetables and salmon. The only food he dislikes is sweet potatoes. His favorite subject in school is math; he is getting better at reading. He has made tremendous academic progress in school over the past six months. He has an Individualized Educational Plan (I.E.P.). Jose is not currently placed with his siblings as he requires more specialized care.

Overall, both of the children are physically healthy. Jose is the only child who takes prescribed medication on a daily basis. Abigail and Jose attend weekly trauma focused individual therapy to deal with their significant and complex abuse and neglect.

The ideal adoptive family for this sibling group, would be a two-parent household with trauma informed parenting experience and behavioral training with no other young children in the home. The adoptive family should have a strong support network locally and have the ability to establish consistent, firm, but loving rules and consequences. The siblings have two older sisters who live out of state and three younger siblings that are being adopted in the St. Louis region. The adoptive family would be expected to promote the sibling bond by maintaining regular contact.

Only currently licensed Missouri adoptive families will be considered. Please have your licensing worker submit your adoptive home study to:

Tylei

Never a dull moment with Tylei, an energetic and fun 8 ½ year old. He is starting 2nd grade this fall. Tylei’s favorite subjects are reading and math. He’s an action hero fan and his favorite character is ”Ironman”. Tylei is an active and engaging young man who will tell you he loves basketball, watching television and riding his bike. His favorite shows are on Disney XD. Although he is not sure what he wants to do when he grows up, he shared that he wants his future job to be adventurous. Tylei’s inquisitive nature keeps him busy. He enjoys working with his hands, assisting with yard work and completing odd jobs around the house. Tylei could benefit from a highly structured home with a parent(s) who can set appropriate boundaries and support his current educational goals.

Termination of parental rights has not occurred yet so this would be considered a legal risk placement. For more information about Tylei, please contact:

David – Family in Progress

David is a sweet seven 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.
