About Jacob, Jessa, Jesiah and Jenai

Jacob, Jessa, Jesiah and Jenai are just a quartet of fantastic siblings you need to know!

Move over Einstein; there is a new math wiz in town! Jesiah loves numbers, and for him, math is a beloved topic. When he takes a break from math, soccer is his next passion. Off the field, Jesiah enjoys eating pizza and apple sauce. He appreciates being helpful and is bonded with his caregivers. Jesiah is an observant fellow, and he likes to follow his peers around to discover their antics. He gets along well with his peers, and he plays well with others. Reddish-Gray is a color Jesiah enjoys most. This second-grader does well in school and enjoys attending.

Meet this child who loves to smile! Jenai is a sweet girl who feels connected to her caregivers. She enjoys independent playtime, mainly if it includes hours of bouncing on the trampoline. When she isn’t outside, Jenai likes using her screen time to play on her tablet. Blue is the best color in her book, and she devours pizza and quesadillas. She enjoys helping others and recently had fun learning how to dust. Jenai enjoys attending school as a first-grader.

Purple hues are Jessa’s favorite! Her to-do list includes play, play, play, and you guessed it, play. Her favorite friend for fun and games is her younger brother, Jacob. A social girl, Jessa enjoys time spent in the company of others. Like her siblings, she is bonded to her current caregivers. Jessa is keen on swimming. Fruits, vegetables, and pizza are a few of her favorite things to eat. One of her proudest accomplishments is that she can make her own bed.

This happy tot is Jacob! A sweet and loving boy, his top priority is to have fun. He adores playing and does well with other children, but his favorite playmate is his sister. Swimming is sure to fill him with glee. Not only has Jacob mastered walking, but he also takes off like a shot and delights in running. He has a healthy attachment to his caregivers and loves eating spaghetti.

Jacob, Jessa, Jesiah and Jenai would do best in a family living in an urban area, in which they are the only children in the home; however, their caseworker will consider all family types.

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.

About RJ

RJ is a shining spirit, no matter the circumstances. He is a beautiful soul who makes the most of every situation. Being an optimist that is respectful towards adults are just some of the many phenomenal traits RJ possesses. To have him around would mean to be surrounding yourself with energies of charisma, creativeness, and someone who cares. He has a smile that lights up a room and a wonderful sense of fashion.

Having a career in the fashion industry is one of his goals; this is where his true passions can come to life. RJ has said he "wants to be an inspiring person that will change lives." He loves to experiment with creating his own clothing and redesigning his room. Aside from being a creative genius, he also enjoys being active. You'll most likely find RJ spending those hot summer days in a pool swimming or spiking a volleyball. If you could imagine those fun-filled summer days, they'd also be filled with music, RJ singing karaoke, movie watching, and, most importantly, spending quality time with family. With an adventurous spirit, this kiddo dreams of visiting California one day. The most unique thing about RJ is his love for vegetables! After a busy afternoon, his favorite foods to munch on are lima beans, carrots, and broccoli. If RJ had superpowers, he would be fine with whatever his powers would be as long as he got to wear a cape to save people. His favorite colors are red, black, and gold.

This charming seventh-grader enjoys attending PE and advanced choir class.

A two-parent family in an urban location, in which RJ can be the only child is preferred; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He would like to remain in contact with his siblings following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.
