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.

Michael, 16

Michael can be a very outgoing, talkative teen. Once he gets to know someone, he loves interacting and having long conversations. He can be sarcastic at times and has a great sense of humor – there is never a dull moment with Michael!  He is bright, creative, inquisitive and loves to ask questions.  Michael likes to have fun, try new things, and is fun to be around. Some of Michael’s interests include tinkering/taking things apart and putting them back together, playing on the computer or watching videos/playing video games, being outdoors, fishing, being on the water and being creative! Michael loves his independence and social time with friends via gaming systems. A family who could find balance between being active and enjoying days at home would be ideal. Michael would benefit from parents who can provide structure, patience, understanding, flexibility and fun.

Following adoption, Michael would need to maintain contact with his siblings.

Lawrence (Larry), 12

Lawrence (Larry) is thoughtful and caring. He is known for his great sense of humor and witty jokes. Larry enjoys football, playing outside, building with LEGOS, drawing, basketball, and science. He likes hanging out with friends and listening to music, especially his favorite artist, Harry Styles. Larry loves eating good food and trying new meals. Some of his favorites are chicken wings, pizza, ribs, spaghetti and meatballs. Larry is interested in geography and skyscrapers, and dreams of seeing the tallest skyscrapers in the world someday. He hopes to find a forever family that enjoys traveling and visiting new places together, whether it is around Minnesota or somewhere far away.

Larry needs a patient two-parent family who can give him consistent structure, support and the 1:1 attention he deserves.  He would do best as the youngest or only child in the home.

Following adoption, Larry would need to maintain contact with his siblings.  Only Minnesota families are being considered at this time.

Bridget, 16

Bridget is an active, likable teen who can be very outgoing once she feels comfortable around you. She enjoys both playing and watching basketball especially the Golden State Warriors. She also likes watching football and is a fan of the Chicago Bears. Bridget’s favorite genre of music is rap. She is a huge fan of the rapper, Lil Baby. Bridget has an artistic side as well. She not only listens to rap, but she also writes her own rap lyrics. Some of Bridget’s favorite foods are Orange Chicken from Panda Express and crab legs. Bridget loves animals and would like to have a dog. Bridget would prefer to live in the city versus a rural area. Bridget would do best with a two-parent family with no other children or only older children in the home. She would thrive in a small family setting that is structured and consistent.
