It’s hard to look away from the sweet smiles on the faces of Reyna and Anthony. These siblings have a close bond and are looking for a “no matter what” family who will love them unconditionally and keep them together for life.
Reyna is a girl with a creative mind who enjoys art, playing with younger children, swimming, watching comedy movies and, like most tweens, watching videos on YouTube. Reyna relaxes by listening to music and prefers to sleep with the radio on. Although Reyna can struggle with change, she can advocate for herself, regulate her emotions, and does well in structured and consistent environments. Reyna has a positive relationship with her current foster family. Although Reyna can sometimes appear tough as a defense mechanism, she has only had positive reports from the school regarding her behaviors. She loves her school very much and feels safe in her classroom.
Anthony is an expressive, affectionate, and curious boy. Like any other kid, he enjoys talking about everything, asking a lot of questions, and is eager to learn new things. It’s no surprise that his favorite TV show is PBS Kids – Super Why! His foster family said that Anthony is like the Energizer Bunny. He is always on the go! He loves to use a trampoline to help him release energy and regulate himself. Anthony also enjoys watching movies, playing with his toys, and spending time with Reyna. Like Reyna, Anthony thrives in an organized and structured environment.
Ideally, Reyna would like to be adopted by a single female but is willing to compromise if she feels a connection with a family. She is naturally protective of her brother and it’s important to her that Anthony has positive interactions with the family as well. These siblings need a trauma-informed “no matter what” family who will provide them with safety, trust, and the opportunity to live a life filled with joy and love.
