  • Jazmin, Jacoby and Joshua

Jazmin, Jacoby and Joshua are sibling of Caucasian and Hispanic descent who are looking to be adopted together.

Jazmin is a loving and quiet 8-year-old girl who enjoys dancing, playing with dolls and drawing. She also loves spending time with her younger brothers. Her biggest wish is to be loved by a family.

Jazmin thrives on support, structure and clear expectations. She is a very cooperative student and tries her best in class, although she struggles somewhat academically. She has special education services in the areas of expressive and receptive language and math.

Jacoby is an energetic 7-year-old boy. His favorite activities include playing with trucks and cars, as well as spending time with his peers and siblings. He is eager to try new things and likes to interact with caring adults who make him feel valued.

Jacoby is supported by an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) in school, which helps him maintain focus in class.

Joshua is a sweet and quiet 6-year-old boy who loves Paw Patrol. He is eager to please, and wants to be loved and cared for. Joshua is doing well in daycare but sometimes has trouble settling down. At this time, he does not receive any special education services.

Legally freed for adoption, the siblings will blossom in a kind, nurturing and structured two-parent family in which they can be valued family members. Their social worker is open to exploring families with a mother and a father figure or two mothers, with or without other children in the home. A family should be open to helping the siblings maintain contact with their paternal grandparents.

Who can adopt?

Can you provide the guidance, love and stability that a child needs? If you’re at least 18 years old, have a stable source of income, and room in your heart, you may be a perfect match to adopt a waiting child. Adoptive parents can be single, married, or partnered; experienced or not; renters or homeowners; LGBTQ singles and couples.

The process to adopt a child from foster care requires training, interviews, and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you, and if so, to help connect you with a child or sibling group that your family will be a good match for.
