Markell, Mya, Makiyla, Maliyah, and Michael have hearts full of hopes and dreams and cannot wait to share with their forever family. This sibling group of five really enjoys playing outdoors and watching television in their spare time. They also enjoy going to the park, watching movies, and playing board games. At times, if one child begins to have an outburst, the other children will follow their lead. However, all of them do well with re-direction and time outs. All five of the children attend supportive services and are benefiting from those services and support. Markell, Mya, Makiyla, Maliyah, and Michael enjoy being in the same foster home so they are able to interact with each other on a regular basis. They are able to function independently but it is recommended that they are supervised. The children look forward to participating in field day at school, summer camps, and activities within the community.
Michael will benefit from a nurturing family who will provide her with attention, love, and affection. The ideal family will ensure Michael continues to participate in supportive services to help him adjust and deal with issues of his past. Patience and positive redirection from the family will be helpful when behavioral issues arise. A family who has a strong desire to adopt Michael and his four siblings is needed. A family who will provide individual and group attention to the children will be best. Michael needs a family who will establish rules and expect Michael to follow the rules. The family's ability to help redirect Michael when he has difficulty focusing will be a plus. Michael will benefit from a family who can help him with achieving his educational milestones. A family who will allow Michael to be independent but still provide supervision and support, is needed. The ideal family will preserve Michael's culture and interests.
