Print Media

Each month, MN ADOPT partners with local news and print media to feature a Minnesota child or sibling group in need of an adoptive family.  These partnerships are invaluable in helping to find homes for Minnesota children and raising awareness about the need for adoptive families in all Minnesota communities.  Below are our current newspapers partners and their most recent waiting child feature.

Star Tribune

Minnesota’s Star Tribune newspaper features Minnesota Waiting Kids (Minnesota children currently in foster care) in their Variety section monthly.

Ethan (12)

Ethan is a funny, curious and creative kid that will always love Frozen! He knows his way around the kitchen and laundry room and is often seen helping out with daily chores. Ethan can be shy at first but once he gets to know people, he can be the life of the party! Ethan enjoys listening to music when he needs some time to chill and says that Chris Brown is his favorite. He likes a lot of outdoor activities- going swimming, hiking around small trails, drawing with chalk, going on bike rides and gardening! He also likes to relax and watch movies and Frozen YouTube videos, put puzzles together and draw in his free time. …..  (Read more about Ethan, watch his video and inquire)

Sherakey (17)

“I’m looking for my “warm spot”, a home and family where I am safe, valued and loved. I really like to keep busy with pretty much anything, but I especially enjoy talking and sharing stories (I’m really social), knitting with my loom, coloring, going to the library and reading. I always feel very special when I get my hair and nails done (like a beautiful princess)!” Sherakey is a very active young lady – there’s never a dull moment when she’s around! She’s looking for a family where she is the only child or the youngest with a parent(s) who has a lot of flexibility and who is readily available to Sherakey. This lovely young lady has a great deal to offer to the family who is able to recognize her tremendous potential!…..(Watch Sherakee’s Reel Hope video and inquire.)

This Month's RiverTown Multimedia Featured Child

Samantha (Sammy) (16)

Sammy likes Shakira A LOT – THE MOST (unless she hears Shakira is a bad influence). Sammy likes getting her hair done (or doing it herself). Currently, Sammy thinks she’d like to be a hair stylist, because she really likes doing hair. She is crazy about Dollar Store shopping sprees. Sammy also likes volleyball, dancing, drawing, and writing. Sammy is very helpful around the house and is respectful and polite. She also takes her education very seriously. She does her homework without prompting and tries her absolute best. When asked what advice she would have for her 30 year old self, Sammy said, “Be kind, and you should care for others.” When asked what she would tell her 50 year old self, she offered, “Enjoy life while you can, and don’t drink so much pop.” Sammy has some pretty simple hopes and dreams right now. She wants a birthday party with all her friends there. She wants to be allowed to watch PG movies. She wants her own iPad. She wants to go to college. …..(Read more about Sammy and inquire.)
