Meet Sharif

Sharif is a very very special little boy. He needs twenty four hour total care. He loves to be tickled and music and responds by smiling. He acknowledges that people are talking to him by following them with his eyes. Sharif needs a very special family who will be able to connect with the little boy inside, who will be able to make him simile and maybe laugh in his own way and who can appreciate that these are the ways he gives back. His family will need to be able to provide for all of his needs for his entire life.

Meet Valecia

Say hi to Valecia! A typical fun day for this bubbly teenager would consist of shopping, hanging out at the mall with friends, or going to the local movie theater. Valecia's friends would describe her as friendly, funny, and a very loyal friend. Valecia loves Italian food so it's no surprise that her favorite restaurant is Olive Garden. In her alone time, Valecia likes to color in adult coloring books and she also likes to read The Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series. A family that is energetic and ready to give Valecia the attention and love she needs would be perfect for her. Perhaps your family can be the one to help Valecia make her dreams come true!
