Children Currently Awaiting Adoption

Wonderful children awaiting adoption through the Department of Family Services.

Adame

AdameMeet Adame, a 13-year-old boy whose smile lights up the room.

Whether he’s riding his bike, going for a hike, or just exploring the great outdoors, Adame loves to be active. Adame enjoys building with Legos, watching or imitating the movie Gremlins and being silly with others. His favorite cartoon is Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir. Adame is adventurous and is always willing to try new things.

In addition to being an active young man, Adame is also incredibly caring. He thrives on building connections with others and desires to show people that he cares for them. This young man has a lot of love to give!

A great family for Adame will be committed to reassuring him of their support. The family will be able to provide some one-on-one support and will step alongside him to help navigate life’s challenges and decisions. He will need a family that can work with his team of providers to advocate for any ongoing concerns and to help further his development.

Ayana

AyanaMeet Ayana, a tenacious and kind 17-year-old with a spunky sense of humor. She has a big personality, a beautiful smile, and a contagious laugh!

Ayana always enjoys listening to music, creating artwork, and talking about the Dallas Cowboys.  She enjoys doing her nails and getting her hair done. Ayana is also an eager learner and likes to volunteer.

She hopes to graduate high school, attend college, and either become a psychologist or “the first Black female football player!” Ayana yearns to be loved for exactly who she is. She hopes to be a part of a family who enjoys being active and listening to music, too!
