Andre is a delightful 10-year-old boy who is intelligent and creative. One of his favorite past times is a good conversation over a game of chess, which he is likely to win. Andre has two sisters that he is close with despite not living in the same home. Andre is looking for a family that is loving and kind, but also structured and consistent. He would very much appreciate and benefit from a home in which is the only child with parents who can offer him a lot of love and attention.


Mackenzie is a fun-loving 15-year-old girl, originally from Texas. While at first she may appear shy, she loves to laugh, joke, and play pranks. Mackenzie’s passion is music and art. Her dream is to one day create her own music for people to listen to. In her free time, she likes to write, journal, cook, and find inspirational quotes and songs. Mackenzie enjoys school and receives high grades. This year she is hoping to join the high school dance team. Mackenzie is looking for a family that can support her and help her dreams come true.


Canaan is an 11-year-old boy who is mature beyond his years in many ways. Canaan enjoys listening to National Public Radio, particularly the jazz music sessions, and can entertain himself for extended periods while relaxing to the sounds of saxophones and piano. He is an aficionado of many types of games, including cribbage, video games, and Magic: The Gathering. Canaan is active in taekwondo and enjoys other athletic activities as well. Canaan is a witty, humorous child who is a strong, independent thinker. While he is very capable of engaging in and enjoying independent activities, Canaan is excited to find a family that enjoys doing lots of activities together also.


Jasmine is a cheerful and friendly 10-year-old girl. She is curious and loves to explore the world around her. The energy she exudes and her love of life is contagious. It is not uncommon to find her making friends with the nearest dog, cat, or other 4-legged animal. Jasmine especially loves dolphins and hopes to one day see a real one.


Halie is a 13-year-old girl who is a delight to be around.  She is gentle, personable, and has a deep love for animals big and small. Halie’s favorite pastime is horseback riding and would love to live in a home that supports this hobby. In addition to riding, Halie enjoys cuddling up with a good book or having a nice conversation. Halie has a close bond with her maternal grandmother and would love to find a family that supports that relationship while also helping her to build new nurturing relationships.
