Maria has a great sense of humor and is on the lookout for ways to make you laugh. She loves to be active (her current placement has a backyard tree house and she’ll show you all the ways to climb to the top!) and likes to spend time playing cards, reading, and drawing. She’s always got a new game to play and is patient when explaining the rules. Maria is thoughtful and kind, and has a spark to her that draws people in. She has got a ton of affection to share with those that she trusts, and has a beautiful laugh that caregivers say is infectious.

Lemuel (Jay) can be reserved the first time you meet him, but you'll know it the second he trusts you, because his huge smile lights up the room and he'll have you laughing in no time! He has tons of charm. Jay cares immensely about the people around him and is always quick with a compliment, and to show genuine interest in adults’ interests and how they are doing. He’s athletic (basketball is his current fav, but he’s pretty happy playing any sport that lets him run around!). He is also a creative kid. Jay’s always got a project he’s working on - working on his painted rock collection, teaching himself stage magic, doing a complicated paint-by-numbers, teaching himself new origami patterns, and a whole lot more! He’ll proudly show you his work and ask you to join in!

Maria and Jay would do well in an experienced two parent home that has the ability to navigate various resources. They thrive with 1:1 attention and would like an active family who can enjoy their active energy, and still find times to be cozy and enjoy quiet time together.
