All are healthy and none of them has had any significant health problems. They are Roma children from a delightful small Eastern European country.
The oldest, Andre (11 years old), is now in the fourth grade and has done very well in school. He plays soccer on a local team and is also practicing traditional folklore dance. Zoe ( 9 years old) is a first grader. Her teacher describes her as exceptionally sweet and very organized. She is an excellent student and an even better friend to those she surrounds herself with. Zoe loves volleyball and plays on her school team. The youngest, Phillip (7 years old) attends a preschool and is described as well adjusted in the classroom. He easily performs all the tasks assigned to him.
Zoe, Andre, and Phillip have lived in the same foster home since 2010. They are described as well behaved with exceptional manners. They are obedient and are well liked and accepted within their foster home community. They have no trouble socializing with children from school and the neighborhood. Each child has their own group of friends with whom they play.
It goes without saying these children will thrive in a nurturing family. Could that family be yours?
