Meet Some of the Children Up for Adoption Right Now

These children, among others not currently listed, are available for adoption right now. We strongly believe that every child deserves a family and a home. If you're interested in potentially adopting on of the children listed below please contact us directly at 855-778-5437.


Alex

Alex is a sweet boy who is shy when he first meets someone, but is very affectionate with the people he forms a relationship with. He is a very active boy who likes to be on the move, playing outdoors and swimming. Alex also enjoys playing match games on his iPad and listening to music. Though he enjoys being around people, Alex sometimes needs reminders on how to set boundaries regarding personal space. Alex has been diagnosed with autistic disorder and although he can play with other children, he prefers to play alone. Alex enjoys school and works well with his teachers. He has an IEP for specialized school as well occupational and speech therapy services to aid in his limited speech. Alex is in need of a forever family who will be patient and understanding while providing consistent structure and routine — he thrives in this type of setting. Alex's forever family will be sensitive to developmental versus chronological age and be willing to access support resources for Alex.

Airianna ("Annie")

Airianna ("Annie") is a joyful, content and loving girl who enjoys playing on her tablet and is extremely talented at navigating electronics. Recently, she discovered a love for running as well. Annie has a hearty appetite and will eat just about anything. Though nonverbal, Annie interacts well with her environment through facial expressions, bodily motions and gestures. It is believed the best placement for Annie would be one with patience, consistency and activity.

Mason

Mason is a happy and adventurous boy who likes to build with his Legos — and with random things around the house — then display his creations. He enjoys the outdoors, plays soccer and lacrosse (he says he likes lacrosse better than soccer!), is fascinated by animals, likes chess and relaxes with video games. Currently in the 6th grade, Mason struggle academically but does not have an IEP at this time. He is behind in reading and math; however, he is doing better and continues to improve his scores in both subjects. It is believed the best placement for Mason would be one with consistent stability, a regular schedule, love and affection and a developmentally stimulating environment.

Shamika

Shamika is an energetic and tall girl for her age who loves listening to music and singing. She also enjoys coloring, playing games, figuring out puzzles and telling stories. She has a sweet tooth, so when she gets a chance, she will take you up on sweet treats such as candy or gum. Shamika may act shy at times, especially when she meets someone new, but once she feels comfortable around you, she will respond to questions about her feelings, wants or needs directly and honestly. Shamika likes animals but does express a fear of bigger dogs. It is believed that Shamika needs a family that is trauma-informed who will be able to provide structure and routine.

Tiana needs an affectionate, loving and accepting home to help her through her teenage years and to help her find herself. Mostly, Tiana just wants to be accepted for who she is, and is looking for someone who has the patience to work with her.
