Dezziray is a sweet, loving and wonderfully compassionate girl with beautiful brilliant blue eyes and an amazing smile!! "Dezzi", as she prefers to be called, yearns for a family that includes a mom (and maybe a dad) - a family who is active and likes to spend time together doing fun things.

When asked about his ideal adoptive family, Tyron thinks carefully, smiles and then gives a thoughtful answer. He wants parents “who are heartwarming, talented and who I can be mellow with.” He is hoping they will want to play board games with him (his favorite is Sorry!), and that they will happily embrace the sports and outdoor adventures that he so loves. He envisions a home with a big backyard, maybe even an outdoor in-ground pool, and “not-too-city but not-too-country.”

Adianna, Pailey and Landon

Ages: 8 - 15

Adianna, Pailey and Landon are a wonderful trio in need of a very engaged, adoring and committed family. These children are positively and beautifully bonded to one another. Each has the strongest hope and desire to remain together as they transition into adoption. They are their own best support system, with little Landon looking up to his big sister Adianna and having so much fun with Pailey as a peer.

He has an excellent sense of humor and enjoys playing with superhero action figures - especially Batman. He is very skilled at video games and likes teaching the adults in his life how to play. Antony is an amazing runner and he delights in this sport. His polite manners and sweetness make it very easy to be immediately drawn to him. Antony is trying so hard to adjust to the many changes and uncertainties in his life.


Age: 10

Izaiah is a delightful little boy with a smile that will light up a room and a hug that will warm your heart! He loves interacting with adults and time dedicated to comforting one-on-one affection. A love of numbers and counting on fingers or clocks can keep him busy for a short time until he is onto something else that interests him such as building with blocks, putting together puzzles, or playing on his iPad. He is a child with a love for the outdoors and will take any opportunity to go for walks, swim, or play at the park. He is simply a joy to be around!

John & Makenzie

Ages: 11 - 11

John "Johnny" and Makenzie are siblings who are looking for a home where they can be adopted together. These siblings would do best in an environment that is calm, predictable and tailored to their needs. They are a fun-loving pair!

With his wide, electric smile and expressive brown eyes, DeaQuan will win your heart in an instant. He has a contagious zest for life and is an adorable, loving child with a cheery disposition. He is warm and affectionate, polite, curious, empathic when he sees others hurting and loves to be around people. He is bonded with his current foster family and loves to hold their hands and snuggle with them, but it doesn’t take him long to warm up to others, as long as his questions about them are answered and he knows the routine.
