Looking to grow your family? Three wonderful kids are hoping for a forever home where they can grow and thrive. Meet ten year old Maria, nine year old Michael and seven year old Nathaniel. We spent an afternoon together at the Discovery Museum.

Sarah: “Do you know why we’re here today?”
Maria: “Why?”
Sarah: “Because we’re going to help you find a forever family.”
Maria: “Yeayyyy!”

Maria and Nathaniel seemed extremely excited about the chance to move into an adoptive home. Without prompting, Nate gave a telling reason as to why, “I’ve lived in six houses.”

Right now the three are in a very supportive foster home, and all the children say they want a forever family as nurturing as the home in which they currently live. With a mom who is kind and nurturing. But, Maria also has a pretty specific desire.

“You know what, I just want my entire family to be an exercising family,” she says. “I like using lots and lots of energy.”

Maria loves to read. She started reading chapter books in second grade to, “Get out of the real world and find, find fiction. Nonsense. A nonsense world I can just appear in.”

Michael loves to build things with blocks.

“Um, I take the bottom leg, slip it out and then it (waves arm) falls,” he says.

Nate also love building, with Legos. But if you ask him if he likes playing with video games?

“Oh, those? I like to play!” he exclaims.
Sarah: “Which ones?”
Nate: “Super Mario Bros 3.”

Nate also has another special talent.

“I know how to cook beef lasagna,” he says. “You open the lid, you pour it in a bowl, then you cook it for 30 seconds. Then it would be hot.”
