Mackenzie, Amani, and Ronald

Mackenzie, Amani, and Ronald love to laugh and are connected by their close sibling bond. Mackenzie is three years old (soon to be four) and a protective older sister. She leads the kids in dance sessions and sing-alongs. She is a big helper and may just be a little sassy. Amani is two years old (soon to be three) and is always on the go. Like most kids her age, she has an occasional “terrible two’s” moment, but easily recovers. Ronald is two years old and is the baby of the family. He is full of energy, but when he is involved in an activity, is very focused and gives it his full attention. These children are in need of a loving family that can match their energy and enthusiasm and, most importantly, respect their sibling and family connections.

This is a legal risk adoption. Only licensed families will be considered. Deadline for home study submission is February 18, 2019.

David is a sweet six 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.
