EVERY CHILD DESERVES A FOREVER FAMILY

Community Connections works in partnership with DFCS to facilitate successful adoption finalizations for children in our foster care program transitioning to their forever families. Meet some of the loving children waiting to be adopted.


Angel

ANGEL, ID# 4344R

Angel, born 11/07, is a sweet and loveable African American girl who is a joy to be around. She is always smiling, loves to laugh and loves to be around other children. Angel is non-verbal, non-ambulatory, legally blind and developmentally delayed, but she is able to play on the floor with her toys, feed herself finger foods, drink from a sippy cup, and is learning to stand with assistance. Angel needs a loving and patient adoptive family who will give her the time, attention, encouragement and nurturing environment she needs to continue learning how to do new things. Her family will also need to provide her with constant supervision and support her need for ongoing physical, speech and occupational therapy.

Nakayla, Arteceia, and Miracle

Nakayla, Arteceia & Miracle, ID# 4994A-4996A

Nakayla, Arteceia and Miracle are loving African American sisters who enjoy playing together (kickball and board games, to name a few), dancing, watching movies, listening to hip-hop music, and coloring.

Nakayla, born December, 2006, is a sweet, affectionate, busy, playful and thoughtful child who loves to laugh and enjoys making others happy and spending time with her foster family. She also enjoys riding her bike, participating in the Special Olympics (she LOVES dodgeball), bowling, and watching TV. At school, Nakayla enjoys learning about math and spending time with the other kids during lunch and recess. Her goals are to graduate from high school and find meaningful employment.

Arteceia, born July, 2009, is a quiet, observant, smart, spirited, and protective girl. She’s described as competitive and enjoys jumping rope and hula hooping. Arteceia also enjoys making people happy as well as giving and receiving praise. At school, Arteceia enjoys playing with her friends during recess and earning good grades. She plans to go to college when she is older.

Miracle, born January, 2011, is a sweet, fun, and busy little girl who loves to help her foster mother with tasks around the house and care for her baby dolls--always having one in hand. She also enjoys playing make-believe and dressing up in costumes. At school, Miracle is well-behaved and enjoys learning about math, making her teacher happy, and playing with her friends during recess and lunch time. Miracle plans to go to college then become an “animal doctor” when she is older so she can “save all the pets.”

Nakayla, Arteceia, and Miracle need a loving adoptive family who will provide them with the attention, support, encouragement, and nurturing environment they need to continue to thrive. Their family will also need to support their need for ongoing therapy, including speech, occupational, and physical which addresses their developmental delays, and academic assistance, as well as, their desire to maintain their relationships with their foster parents and their siblings, who have been planned for adoption separately.
