About Hakeem and Samira

Hakeem and Samira (Sammie) dream of a home with pets to shower with affection!

Journaling and drawing help this genuine fellow feel relaxed! Hakeem enjoys being active, especially if it means he can show off his scooter tricks and ride his bicycle around. He also likes playing basketball and relishes opportunities to play with pets; cats and dogs are his favorite. When Hakeem needs something to watch, Marvel movies, YouTube, or The Simpsons are likely choices for this teen. Fortnite is another fun way to spend his free time. Red is the best-liked color, and he thinks speed would be the most rad superpower. Pizza disappears quickly when Hakeem is in the mood for a slice. Friendly, polite, and kind, this considerate child gets along with anyone he crosses paths with. Hakeem can see himself working for Pixar Studios, writing and directing movies. As a tenth grader, he is challenging himself with AP and honors courses. Math, PE, and weight training are important parts of his school day.

Nothing excites Samira more than traveling. She hopes to travel to Hawaii, Seattle, Wisconsin, Syria, Massachusetts, Yosemite, New York City, London, and Lake Tahoe. She likes hiking, photography, sunsets, roller coasters, specifically six flags, and the beach. Samira journals her life in photographs so that she can have something to look back on. She would prefer to only have a mom since that's the way she grew up, but she is also okay with two moms. Samira likes fruit such as raspberries, cut-up strawberries, and oranges, particularly cuties. She enjoys Rubio's and Roberto's, especially Mexican rice, cheese, and beans, and adores chicken tamales and Takis.

Hobbies Samira relishes include time spent with her sister, shopping, sports such as contemporary dance, and her phone because she has all of her memories on it along with her older sister who she is very close with. Samira would like others to know that she is kind and polite; however, she doesn't enjoy being around small children because they make her anxious, and she prefers not to have additional siblings. Samira’s focus for her future is law, she plans to help teenagers because that is what she does in her community judicial program.  She is extra fond of debating and public speaking as it all comes natural for her. She does very well in school as a seventh grader and is on a path toward going to college for seven years to be able to be a juvenile defense lawyer. Samira would prefer her forever home to be in her current state, but may be open to neighboring states.

Hakeem and Sammie would do best in a family residing in an urban area, in which they are the only children in the home; however, their caseworker will consider all family types. They have significant connections they will need to maintain. Due to these connections, a home in NEVADA or surrounding states is preferred. We will only accept inquiries on the sibling pair, as they will be placed together. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

About Paul
 
Greeting people with big hugs is always a favorite of Paul’s! He easily engages with others and does his best to learn something from everyone he meets. Paul treasures one-on-one attention from adults, and he does well with peers. 

Paul is a math whiz and has the uncanny ability to solve problems in his head; no paper necessary! This fourth-grader loves the color blue. He gravitates towards eating spicy foods. He also enjoys breakfast foods and chicken nuggets dunked in sweet and sour sauce. 

Paul appreciates looking his best, especially if it includes a pair of Fila shoes, his favorite brand. This shoe fiend knows that you have to keep your kicks looking new! One of his most prized possessions is his diamond stud earrings, and he enjoys going shopping to keep his look on point.

Paul is eager to find a space to call his own where he can have pets and join a soccer or basketball team. He is known for his athletic nature, and he likes playing soccer, football, and basketball. Outside of the sports field, this guy also wants to get as many strikes in the bowling alley as he can and thinks racecars are super cool. Video games are one way that he chooses to wind down. In his eyes, dogs are the best animal, and Spiderman, the Incredible Hulk, and Fortnight characters are all favorable to him. 

Paul would do best in a family with other children, where he can be the youngest; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He will need to remain in contact with his siblings following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

Ryker and Sirena are siblings who deserve to grow up together!

Playing with toys fills Ryker with joy! If you know the difference between the Decepticons and Autobots, then this kiddo will fall easily into conversation with you. Even if your Transformers knowledge is lacking, he loves to tell others all about them. Ryker goes so far as to say that Transformers are his favorite animal (yes, he REALLY loves them). Building with LEGO is another hit for this kiddo, who also loves people to know that he is proud of how smart he is. Bacon is a yummy treat for him, and army green is his best-liked color. It should come as no surprise that if Ryker could choose his superpower, being a Transformer would be the only option. He has good relationships with peers and adults. Recess is always looked forward to by this third grader.

This little lady is Sirena! As any adult might know, Cocomelon provides catchy tunes that captivate a toddler’s attention. The program certainly has captivated Sirena’s attention, and she loves being able to listen to nursery rhymes and songs all day long. She goes a little nutty for her favorite meal of SpaghettiOs. Sirena is learning quickly and is enjoying becoming a helper around the house. She has positive interactions with peers and is bonded to her caregivers. Sirena blossoms with attention from adults.

Ryker and Sirena would do best in a two-parent family in which Ryker remains the oldest child and Sirena the youngest child in the home; however, their caseworker will consider all family types. They have significant connections to maintain following placement. Due to these connections a home in NEVADA is preferred. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

Sweet and loving with an adoration for making others laugh: meet Saniya! For this kiddo, there is nothing better than playing the day away. She adores soaking up the sunshine, especially when she is swimming and playing with her friends in her free moments. Cheetahs and purple are just a drop in the bucket of her favorite things. Saniya fancies herself proficient in playing video games and enjoys honing her skills during screen time. Invisibility would be the only power she needs if given superpowers. Buffets come in second place to McDonald’s spicy chicken sandwiches, as they allow her an opportunity to try a plethora of yummy options to eat. Making friends comes naturally for Saniya, and she enjoys being social. She also has good relationships with adults. Saniya hopes to become a mother when she is old enough.

Recess is this seventh grader’s favorite part of the school day.

All family types will be considered. Saniya wishes to have pets in her family. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

All About Child:

Truely is a social teen who enjoys hanging out and talking to her friends whenever she can. When it comes to the weekend, Truely is sure to ask to go on a fun hike and enjoys being outdoors. Her smile is brightest after her nails are drying from a fresh manicure and her clothing reflects her unique self. Pink, purple, red, and black are her favorite colors. Known for her bubbly personality, she benefits from positive time with peers and adults. Those who know her best remark that Truely is easy to talk to. Truely enjoys writing, listening to music, talking and reading novels.

She is now in the seventh grade.

Truely would do best in a family with a mom or two moms; however, her caseworker will consider all family types. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

When Truely thinks about her ideal family setting, she says she wants “a house that is loud and has a lot going on.” Freedom to express herself through makeup and her clothing is important to her. As all youth deserve, a family that will support her when she makes choices they don’t agree with is also important to Truely.
