Sibling Group of Five Has Smiles That Will Warm Your Heart
Stacy, Ladarrius, Jonas, Shaybrell and Ivery are siblings with warm smiles and bonded with love.
This sibling group is in the process of being adopted.
Ivery, Shaybrell, Jonas, Ladarrius and Stacy are sure to bring lot of love to any family.
Ivery is a four-year-old, who is in Pre-Kindergarten. She is a friendly child who loves school. When completing assignments however, Ivery can be easily distracted. She loves knowing what's going on all around her and quickly wants to get involved, sometimes to a fault. Like most four-year-olds, Ivery can become aggressive when things aren't going her way. With some redirection and consistency, Ivery calms down and returns to the original task. Ivery loves books and enjoys being read to. She would benefit from a one or two parent home that is positive and willing to help redirect Ivery when she needs it most. Ivery's speech can sometimes be a challenge to understand so patience and possible speech therapy may be needed. Ivery interacts adequately with other children and loves being the center of attention.
Shaybrell is a five-year-old kindergartner, who loves school. Shaybrell is a very friendly child with a warm smile. She loves to play with other children and her favorite pastime is playing with her dolls and puzzles. While Shaybrell enjoys school, it can sometimes be a challenge for her in maintaining focus in class and staying on task. Shaybrell will need special attention as she works through the losses in her life. Shaybrell will work best with a one or two parent family who can be patient, consistent and positive while working with her to improve her social skills, behavioral issues and educational challenges.
Jonas is a six-year-old first grader that is quiet, but loves playing with other children. He is kind, loving and loves to sing in church and enjoys Sunday school. Jonas requires one on one attention so that he feels very important to the adults in his life. He continues to need more practice when his school work requires that he remains within the line when coloring, drawing and writing. Because Jonas' exposure to social situations was limited, it is believed that repeated exposure and practice will help him to progress in this area. Jonas would benefit from a one or two parent family that has the time and dedication to make sure Jonas knows how special he really is. Jonas does not like confrontations or chaotic situations. He tends to have a short attention span and will get irritated when working on tasks that he cannot easily understand. Jonas loves school and is on the A-B Honor roll.
Ladarrius is a seven-year-old second grader, who enjoys school and playing with other children. He has a warm smile and loves to please others. When it comes to making friends and responding appropriately in social situations, Ladarrius is challenged and needs help in his daily interactions with his peers. He can be easily distracted and would require parents who can keep him on task. Ladarrius would benefit from a one or two parent household. Ladarius needs a family that will help improve his communication and social skills. Ladarrius enjoys spending time with his siblings. He would need parents that will help him through his issues regarding the losses he has experienced in his life.
Stacy is a nine-year-old second grader with a big smile, who enjoys school, but has some challenges. He loves playing with legos and cars, as well as interacting with friends. Stacy loves building things and this keeps him busy. Stacy requires a loving home with stability, structure and consistency. He will function well in a one or two parent family that can be patient and loving, while giving him positive attention. Stacy needs a family that will help boost his self-esteem so that his interactions with others are more positive. Stacy loves attending church, and playing with his younger brother that is placed in the same foster home with him. Stacy has had numerous moves, and will benefit from a family that will commit to providing him with the stability and nurturing he needs to assist him with issues associated with loss and rejection.
