Looking for a Permanent Home

The children below are looking to connect with a forever family and a place to call home.


Jennifer or “Jenny” as she prefers to be called is as unique as her freckles! This 11 year old has a positive demeanor and her smile can brighten a room. Jenny can be shy in group settings but is building her confidence and finding her voice. Jenny finds it hard to narrow down her favorite things, she likes everything!
She is energetic and enjoys spending time with friends. She is a loving big sister and always looks out for her younger sister, Amber.
Little sister, Amber, may be younger and smaller, but she makes up for this with her feisty personality. At seven years old, she prefers to be the leader and goes after what she wants. She has no trouble naming all of her favorite things in any category!
Both girls like to play outside and are not afraid to get dirty. Jenny and Amber love having their hair braided and playing dress up. They can often be found playing pretend as Power Rangers or princesses, depending on the day. Jenny and Amber would like to explore sports and other interests with a family. These sweet sisters are looking for a family that can keep up with them and provide a safe and loving home where they can grow up together!

This is a legal risk adoption.

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.
