To mrs. r.....thank you again for helping me with this effort! It has meant a great deal to me!! I love knowing other people who are willing to give voice to their passions!
Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving Week!!!! I hope next year these children below will have a family all their own to be thankful for and parents who count them as the greatest blessing in their lives!
Children deserve to be loved and cherished!

Josiah age 8.
Friendly Josiah is greatly anticipating being adopted and having a stable, loving family of his own. This kind kid loves to ride his bike but one of his greatest passions is for football! Josiah is a people person and likes to mingle with those he meets. He is very adaptable and is a fun boy to be around. Josiah is currently attending the third grade. He is benefiting from counseling, which will need to continue after placement. A nurturing home that can prove to be caring and secure is what Josiah needs most. This young guy is waiting for a forever family who can offer him the great home he deserves. It is very important to Josiah that his forever family be supportive of contact and visitation with his biological siblings.

Academically, Frank describes himself as a “smart kid.” He is in the sixth grade and will need help catching up in math and reading. In addition, he will need support in meeting his academic potential and a structured school plan that will address his behavioral issues which include being physically and verbally aggressive toward his peers and authority figures at school.
