Johnny and Makenzie are waiting to be adopted


Johnny, 12, and Makenzie, 11, are excited about being adopted together.

Loving and caring Johnny has a happy disposition. Initially shy, he warms up quickly and is friendly and outgoing. Although he is adventurous with foods and likes to try new dishes, he thrives when following a routine and schedule. Johnny is blind in his right eye due to a previous lack of medical care. His future caregivers will need to ensure he visits an optometrist regularly.

Makenzie has a welcoming smile and green eyes. She is loving and empathetic toward her brother and foster siblings. Makenzie likes to receive lots of attention, especially from caregivers.

Each child has shown remarkable improvement in their behavior and overall functioning since being in appropriate foster homes with consistent caregiver attention. They deserve to feel the security that comes with being part of a family, and it is anticipated they will continue to grow and prosper once they achieve permanency.

Johnny and Makenzie are very attached to their current foster family and will require a slow, thoughtful transition when an adoptive family is located. They would do best in a two-parent home with children who are similar in age or older to help set an example for them. Johnny and Makenzie would love to have brothers and sisters. They are busy and require parents who are able to provide ongoing supervision, attention and predictability. They also would benefit from a calm, supportive environment.
