A Family for Me
QKids featured in February 2009
Feb. 16: David
David is a lively young boy who loves interacting with adults, children and animals. He’s happiest when he’s busy, whether he’s riding a scooter, playing ball or spending time on the computer. He’s proud of his ability to ride a horse and looks forward to his weekly lesson. David’s special needs can best be met in an experienced, two-parent, active family where he is the youngest or only child.

Feb. 9: Jamal
Jamal is cooperative and helpful in his foster home. He loves watching movies or TV, and playing video games. He is also very spiritual, and would like to be adopted into a Christian home where he can participate in church activities. Jamal is in mainstream classes for most of the day at school, with some additional supports in place to help him succeed both socially and academically. Jamal could do well in an experienced family with older siblings who can be role models. Most of all, Jamal needs a consistent, supportive family who will advocate for the resources he needs, and provide him with reassurance and commitment.

Feb. 2: Jesus
Jesus is a young boy with a great smile, delightful sense of humor and outgoing personality. He loves being outdoors and having adventures. When indoors, Jesus uses his energy on drawing, doing arts and crafts, watching TV and playing video games. He is making progress at school and in his current foster home. A family who can speak Spanish and will help him stay connected to his Mexican heritage would be ideal. Most of all, Jesus needs experienced, stable parents he can trust to accept and love him through the rough spots as he grows.
