ARIELLA from Florida
Meet Duane and Ariella! This adorable duo are searching for a loving and patient family to call their own. Duane, known as William, is an outgoing and energetic little boy who loves video games. He enjoys riding his scooter and playing with electronics. He is intelligent, resourceful and curious. He can be very serious and logical at times and needs some encouragement to engage in playful banter with other children. Duane has learned to manage the chaos he has experienced by utilizing coping skills that are sometimes hard for adults to understand, including a colorful and elaborate vocabulary. Ariella has also experienced a lot of ups and downs in her short life. She is outgoing but also enjoys playing independently and on her tablet. She gets along well with other children her age and is learning how to share. She finds security in her personal possessions which are very important to her. Both children are in need of a loving and patient family who can provide structure and loving guidance as they begin the healing process. Interested families should have the ability to be frequently available during the day to meet with teachers and helping professions upon request. Families that have a strong local support network, as well as a strong history of advocacy and deep sense of empathy are preferred.
