Profiles

Devin

Age: 12

Devin is a 'Calvin & Hobbs' kind of boy whose antics, imagination and infectious belly-laughs engage everyone around him. For an active single mom or dad or couple who can get inside his world, this younger-than-age pre-teen will keep you busy and young at heart. Despite the many challenges he's experienced, Devin's love of fun and one-on-one engagement make it easy to build a natural reward system into his rule-based understanding of life.



Andre

Age: 16

I'm Andre and I love going out in nature, to smell the breeze and enjoy what God gave me. I like to fish. I have my own tackle box and rod and reel. I also like to be outdoors doing just about anything--swimming, riding bikes, playing with the dogs, paint balling, cleaning the horse pens and riding them, too. I'd like to have a family that enjoys riding dirt bikes or 4-wheelers. I hope they enjoy camping and fishing and hunting.



Niko

Age: 15

"Hi, I’m Niko. I love to draw and listen to music on my MP3 player. I like animals, especially dogs and horses. I’d like to train dogs when I get older. I’ve even thought about getting a dog one day--a dog from a shelter, not a pet store. I want a dog that was abandoned, so I can take care of it."



Colby

Age: 16

This shy teenager will warm up quickly to anyone who is armed with pizza or LEGO! He is very proficient at building things with LEGO and can sit for quite a long time engaging in this, his favorite hobby. He is just learning to find leisure activities that he enjoys and would thrive with a family who helps him to explore new interests. Some of his most recent interests include reading and doing crafts.



Cody

Age: 15

Cody is a sweet young man whose bright grin and shy demeanor will capture any parent's heart. He desires to have a family that are avid outdoors people, a family that will give him 100% and use some creativity in helping him to successfully manage his behaviors when they become overwhelming. He loves biking, hiking, camping, hunting, and 4-wheeling. He also enjoys playing basketball and video games.



AJ

Age: 16

Dressed in a Nike t-shirt with a bold message, AJ hopes something will convince an adoptive or guardian family to "Just Do It." AJ has been preparing for family life for a long time. He's hoping the right mom or dad will care that the journey he's been on has been mostly discouraging. You might be the one to show him the way home.



Isaiah

Age: 16

"Hi, I'm Isaiah. I love sports. I love playing basketball and football. My favorite team is the Seattle Seahawks. I wish I could live near a big city, like Boise, where I can go to college and professional games. I also like being outside. I want to be able to go hunting one day.

My wish for a family is to have a mom and a dad. I also wants brothers and sisters. I don't want to be an only child. I would also love to have a grandma and a grandpa."



Derek

Age: 17

"My name is Derek and I like to make people laugh! I like drawing,origami, basketball (especially the Utah Jazz!) being outdoors, and riding on just about anything with wheels -- dirt bikes, skateboards, 4-wheelers, bikes and scooters. I also like baseball and think I'm a good pitcher."

"I want a family who will treat me nice and will help me to make good choices. I want a house with lots of rooms to play and a place where I can play outside. I really want a family that will let me stay in touch with my birth family. Because this is really important to me, I need to stay in Idaho, or close enough to visit a lot."



Andrew

Age: 13

"Hi. My name is Andrew. You should call me Andy--that's what I like. My friends at school would describe me as someone who makes them laugh. I like to tell knock-knock jokes. I like almost every sport, but basketball is my favorite! I can spin the ball on my finger tip.
