Murray City Park, Murray Utah

Greggory age 12.
It may take a little time for this pre-teen to warm up to new adults but once he does, it’s easy to see that it’s worth the wait. Greggory, who likes to be called Greg, has an enourmous heart, a happy nature, and an easygoing attitude; he will quickly win over your heart. This resiliant kiddo is able to keep a positive and upbeat attitude even when life may get a little tough. An intelligent guy, Greg is capable of learning when put to the test. Video games, puzzles, coloring, music composition, performing, guitar playing, card collecting, animals, interacting with others, and learning new things are some of the things that Greg enjoys most. He also loves electronic hand- held games and is very talented at taking them apart and figuring out how they work.

A seventh grader this year, Greg enjoys school, tries hard, and really likes the social atmosphere school provides. He benefits from an IEP (Individualized Education Plan), and will do well with parents who are academically supportive.

If you could possibly be a part of Greggory’s forever family and can provide him with the support, stability, and love he needs, we urge you to inquire. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

Breanna & Kimberly ages 8 & 9
Meet Kimberly and Breanna, two energetic and fun girls who enjoy being silly. Kimberly, who goes by Kimmi or Kim, has short brown hair and beautiful dark brown eyes. She loves playing games, reading, and playing sports (soccer and basketball in particular). Breanna has large blue eyes and short brown hair with bangs. Breanna's interests include playing board and card games. She also enjoys being active and playing outside. Both girls love to eat sweets. Kimberly would select sugar cookies as her favorite food and Breanna specifically chose ''sugar on candy'' as her favorite food.

Kimberly and Breanna have a strong bond with their biological father, and were visiting with him on a regular basis both in the foster home and community prior to October of 2009. The girls also have a very good relationship with their paternal grandparents, who were visiting the girls on a weekly basis prior to October of 2009. Since the disruption, their biological father has sent them gifts for Christmas and their paternal grandparents have been writing to them on a regular basis as well as sending various holiday gifts. In person contact has not occurred yet due to the girls needing to stabilize but will be looked at in the near future. Ongoing contact of some form is recommended for the girls.

Kimberly is a very sweet child and tries hard to please people. She is usually happy and tries to be helpful to those around her. Kimberly is a social child and has numerous friends at school. She easily attaches to her caregivers and enjoys giving and receiving hugs.

Breanna is an energetic slender child who enjoys smiling. She has been noted to be affectionate and enjoys giving and receiving hugs.

Kimberly and Breanna will need to continue in therapy after they have transitioned to an adoptive home. They need an experienced family with a large amount of patience that is open to utilizing resources and following treatment provider suggestions. A family that is open to ongoing contact with the biological family will also benefit the girls. Kimberly and Breanna are two sweet and wonderful girls eager to be adopted by a family that is willing to commit to caring for the girls on a long term basis.
