Matching Mondays

Micheala age 15.
This intelligent young woman with the sweet personality loves to read and can often be caught with a book in her hands. Micheala is an outgoing and likeable teen who makes friends easily. She has great relationships with her peers. Besides her love of books, Micheala also enjoys dancing and acting. Her dreams include someday becoming a successful actress and being adopted by a loving family.

A sophomore this year, Micheala is on grade level. She will soon be benefiting from an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) and will do well with parents who will support her academically.

If you would like to help Micheala’s wishes come true and can provide her with the love, support, and consistency she needs we urge you to inquire. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related costs.

Jerry age 17.
Jerry, born June 1992 is described as a friendly young man with good manners. He enjoys playing video games and hanging out with his friends. His eyes simply lit up at Christmas this year when he had the money to buy a couple of games he'd been wanting. He wants to write and act in his own sitcom.

Jerry's favorite subject in school is history. He's not currently a member of any clubs, teams or groups at school. He does go to church on the weekend. His favorite (school) holiday is Spring break -- because he's out of school for several days and gets to have fun. His favorite restaurant is Chick-Fil-a.

When he has time to spend with his friends he just enjoys hanging out and talking. Jerry says he has a pretty good sense of humor and that is the thing about himself that he is the most proud of. He says he'd like to be a movie star when he grows up. We found Jerry quite entertaining and self-assured!

These four girls have a very strong bond with each other, and for this reason it is recommended that they be placed together. Due to the amount of children in this family the case worker suggests that the children be placed with a two parent family and that one parent be able to stay home to help the children adjust and care for their needs. The family should also be willing to facilitate some ongoing contact with the girls relatives in Northern Illinois. These girls are looking for a forever family who will care for them and allow them all to be together again!
