Healthy siblings Luca, Amos, and Emmaline were born in January 2006, January 2007, and July 2009, respectively. These children who have endured multiple living situations are currently living in the same orphanage and yearn for a family to call their own. Luca was diagnosed with learning difficulties of reading and writing, specifically dyslexia and dysgraphia. He was evaluated by a psychiatrist recently who gave him a diagnosis of childhood attachment disorder, but this diagnosis is disputed by his social worker and caregivers who have scheduled another evaluation to clarify.

Luca is an energetic, observant, sometimes impulsive boy who truly cares for his younger siblings. He plays well alone, establishes contact easily with others, and attempts to join group games but is often disruptive and uncertain of how to interact appropriately. Luca struggles to maintain friendships and prefers to play with his brother and sister. He has difficulty with concentration and following the rules at school and at the orphanage.

Luca completed 5th grade with assistance from a resource teacher in the 2016/2017 school year where he struggled to acquire the material. He was frequently absent from classes, disrespectful of his teachers, and lacked interest and motivation. Luca shared he could not understand the information well and was bullied for not being able to read and write.

Luca willingly participates in chores at the orphanage and takes care of his personal hygiene and self-service needs with reminders. His favorite activity is playing outside. When asked about his feelings regarding adoption he shares that it is everything he is hoping for and he cannot wait for a forever family to adopt him and his siblings.

Amos is a well-mannered, bright boy who is able to play by himself but also engages with his peers and eagerly takes part in organized activities. He respects authority and follows the rules at school and at the orphanage. Amos can read, write, and retell stories. He completed 3rd grade in the 2016/2017 school year where he worked with a resource teacher due to some academic gaps. Amos is a motivated student who attends classes regularly, prepares his homework and invests the effort needed to learn the required information. He takes pride in his successes.

Amos manages his personal hygiene, takes good care of his belongings, and gladly helps out with household chores. He enjoys listening to music, watching cartoons, and playing ball. Amos desperately wants to be adopted together with his siblings and is saddened that they do not yet have parents to care for them.

Emmaline is an artistic, playful girl who expresses her emotions appropriately, interacts well with her peers, and enjoys the company of adults, seeking their attention and approval. She complies with the rules and requirements when given reminders. Emmaline completed 1st grade in the 2016/2017 school year with good marks. She quickly mastered the material and has a strong desire to learn.

Emmaline eagerly helps with household tasks and enjoys listening to music, watching cartoons, drawing, and dancing. She especially likes participating in plays organized by a local art studio. Emmaline has a positive attitude towards adoption despite not yet having a comprehensive understanding of the process.

These siblings clearly share a warm, supportive, and loving bond. They long to have a forever family to love us and to want us.
