Maria has a great sense of humor and is on the lookout for ways to make you laugh. She loves to be active (her current placement has a backyard tree house, and she’ll show you all the ways to climb to the top!) and also likes to spend time playing cards, reading, and drawing. She’s always got a new game to play and is patient when explaining the rules. Maria is thoughtful and kind, and has a spark to her that draws people in!

Lemuel (Jay) can be reserved when you first meet him, but once he gets to know you he is very talkative. He’s athletic (basketball is his current fav, but he’s pretty happy playing any sport that lets him run around!) and is also a creative kid. He’s always got a project he’s working on—working on his painted rock collection, doing a complicated paint-by-numbers, teaching himself new origami patterns, and a whole lot more! He’ll proudly show you his work and ask you to join in!

Maria and Jay would do well in an experienced two parent home that has the ability to navigate various resources. They thrive with 1:1 attention and would like an active family who is committed to keeping up with their energy! Out-of-state families would need to be open to maintaining connections in Minnesota.
