Jean

Meet 14-year-old Jean! This social 8th grader originally hails from Haiti, but has spent nearly his entire life in Montana.

Among Jean’s favorite activities are Special Olympic sports, bocce ball, soccer and bike riding. But this young man can also be content finding a good book at the library or creating with Legos. 

Routine is extremely important to Jean. It will be vital for his family to understand that daily consistency is key to helping him to function at his best.  When at his public school, Jean does his coursework in a self-contained classroom. This simply means that he is learning in a smaller group of students and receives extra supports from teachers to guide him through the material. 

Due to a road marked by much difficulty, Jean needs to be the only child living in the home and will need to have a parent waiting for him when he arrives home from school each day. When asked what he would like in a family, Jean shared that his family doesn’t need to be of his same race and… oh… he would love a family with a grandma – now there’s a guy who knows what’s important!

And, please keep him in your prayers.

Jon

Laughing and joking around come easily to 13-year-old Jon. The word ‘funny’ quickly springs to mind when thinking of how to describe him! He’s one active dude and likes to be out and about living life– whether it’s sporty things like basketball, swimming, and flag football or learning about hobbies he’s especially interested in, like gaming. Jon’s inquisitive nature makes him open to exploring and experiencing new things… and those new things are especially wonderful when done alongside someone else. He thrives on one-on-one attention from adults. 

At school, Jon has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that helps him get the most out of the classroom experience. Going forward, it will be important for him to be in a school that has supportive services in place that help him. 

A family that is consistent, structured and routine-oriented will be best for Mr. Jon. Since he has such a craving for one-on-one attention, a home where he is the only child would be ideal.

Joey

Sixteen-year-old Joey has a great sense of humor! This witty 16 year old, likes joking around with others, is a Lego master and loves participating in Special Olympics sports. Joey enjoys going to school. 

This young man needs a forever home where he can feel secure and know he is loved. Joey has missed out on having trustworthy relationships and the security and love that goes along with that. He needs a forever family who is willing to commit to his emotional and physical needs through consistency and frequent affirmation. 

Joey has some learning and health challenges that will cause him to do best in a structured home, one with clear expectations that are communicated in a way that he can understand. For him to prepare for transitions, he needs to be told well in advance about things happening in the future. 

A best fit for Joey will be a family without children his same age, so that he can receive the affirmation of security and love his heart needs right now. A home with older children may be a very positive fit so he can model their behavior. Joey enjoys spending time with his sisters and grandmother, so it will be important for his family to help him maintain that connection.

Hunter

Hunter is a 12-year-old, 5th grader who needs a forever home!

This active guy is “all boy” and loves the outdoors. He loves to run, jump, climb, ride bikes and skateboard. Give this boy a yard and he will amaze you with his gymnastic abilities.  

Hunter would do best in an active family. He is good at entertaining himself, but he needs the positive reinforcement and the activity that family events, school activities and sports provide. He enjoys playing with other children but he might do best in a smaller-sized family.

This boy’s family will need to be very patient with him and provide structure and demonstrate trustworthy commitment.

Hunter has siblings and expresses concern for their well-being. A family that is open to letting his relationship with his siblings continue is very important.
