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.

This Month's Star Tribune Featured Child

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 Sherakey’s video and inquire)

Dean (15)

Dean has a great sense of humor and likes to be the center of attention.  He loves to dance and enjoys spending time outdoors, watching shows like Family Guy, going to drive-in movie theaters and listening to all types of music, especially rap.  Dean really likes animals and would enjoy living on a hobby farm.  Some of his favorite foods are Chinese food, pasta and seafood.  Dean needs a family who can provide structure and predictability.  It would be best if he was the youngest child in the home.  Following adoption, Dean would need to maintain contact with his older sister as well as his birth mother.…..(Watch Dean’s Reel Hope video and inquire.)

Maria (13) & Lemuel, aka Jay (11)

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! …..(Read more about Maria & Jay  and inquire.)
