Welcome and thank you for caring about children and youth in foster care! The following children are currently waiting for a foster-adoptive family or a foster family who is in the position to adopt, should the case move in that direction. Both home studied and non-home studied families may inquire.


Image 1: Storm, age 16

Storm, age 16

Storm is a 16-year old that is very charismatic and funny. They are creative and love art--especially drawing. They have a harder time when not active and love to exercise. They are high energy and very caring which is displayed through their love for animals and adventure. They love dogs and would like to own one or be in a home with one. 

They need a lot of individual attention. When they are bored or feel overlooked, they become dysregulated. Storm would prefer a same-sex (female) couple with no other children in the home. A potential family must be LGTBQ affirming.

Raven, age 16

Raven is searching for their forever home! They are a 16-year-old transgender youth who identifies as they/them. Raven loves music and when a song comes on the radio, they can name the song title and artist before anyone else in the room.  Intelligent and humorous, they love to read and write stories, draw, listen to music, and be active outdoors. Raven also enjoys a good video game. Many of Raven's struggles are consistent with complex trauma.  Raven's future success will be supported best by recognizing their strengths as well as providing a consistent, safe, and structured environment for them.

Image 4: Braylon, age 9

Braylon, age 9

Braylon is an active, energetic, and fun loving 9 year old boy. Braylon loves superheroes and Harry Potter. He fancies himself a character in the story. He loves to read books, ride his bike and his razor scooter. He always has a song or a rhythm in his head, and would love to learn to play the drums. He is energetic and fun loving.

The ideal adoptive family would likely be a two parent home where he is the only child in the home, in Colorado. This family would need to advocate well for him and his needs. As well as be willing to take him to appointments such as therapy and participate in monthly meetings for school needs.
