Image 2: Meet Our Waiting Children & Youth

Braylon is an active, energetic, and fun loving 8 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.

Meet Zach

Zach is 15 years old and looking for a permanent home. Zach enjoys playing video games, building computers, being around animals, and all types of outdoor activities. He is musically talented and intelligent. Zach is driven to complete his goals in life, including getting his driver's permit, and wants to be successful. Zach would do best in a home as the only child, but he would also do okay in a home with older children. He can get emotionally dysregulated.  A patient and laid-back family would be his preference to help him handle his emotions.
