Smiling girl with braided hair

Metiki, Age 17

Metiki is a kind and friendly seventeen year-old, but usually very shy when you first meet her. Metiki enjoys sports, especially soccer, as well as art and music. Metiki is from Ethiopia and would like to be connected to her cultural heritage. One way to see Metiki shine is to ask her about her Ethiopian roots. Metiki would do well with a two-parent family where she is the youngest or only child, and in a household with structure, routines and supervision. If this describes your family, register for Orientation or .

Foster Child Alex

Alex, Age 15

Michael, who prefers to go by “Alex”, can be found exploring the world through National Geographic! He loves both music and television, but also enjoys taking a break from those activities by spending some time outside. Alex has good relationships with all those around him, and is very well liked.

This ninth grader benefits from an IEP (Individualized Education Plan), and utilizes a feeding tube and wheelchair. It is not expected that Alex will live independently as an adult, but a marvelous life is a possibility for him!

All family types will be considered by his caseworker. Alex would like to maintain contact with his biological mother after placement.. register for Orientation or .

Ryan, Age 7

Training for a 5K is just one of Ryan’s many goals! He is naturally athletic and would relish the opportunity to participate in team sports some day soon. Ryan is described as extremely outgoing, charismatic, witty, socially gifted, caring, kind and self-confident. In his free time he enjoys playing video games and trying out new dance movies. Ryan favors the color blue, dreams of becoming an “Army guy” when he grows up, and would like to possess the superpowers of speed, flying and strength.
