Meet Vanessa and Reyes!
Vanessa is a vivacious young lady with a caring, open heart and a knack for making friends. After she meets you, it doesn’t take long for her outgoing, talkative nature to shine through — or for the giggles to start. She’s your typical teenage girl who loves being connected to friends. She jokes that the social aspects of school are her favorite “subjects.”
Vanessa is active and playful, and is dreaming of finding a family who is, too. Family game nights, movie marathons, afternoons at the park — these are the things she’s looking forward to most. She’s also an animal lover — dogs especially, but all animals — and can’t wait to have pets in her forever home. Above all, though, she’s a teenager, and would love to find family members who get that — maybe someone who’ll break out some dance moves or teach her a soccer trick or two.
Friendly, with a laugh that can light up a room, that’s Reyes. Whether he’s playing a game outside or cozying up inside to read a book, Reyes finds the fun and adventure in every activity, and he can’t wait to find a forever family that loves to laugh as much as he does. Besides playing games and reading, Reyes loves PAW Patrol. He would love nothing more than to spend time together watching the pups’ latest antics in Adventure Bay. Or, even better, join a home with real dogs or other pets that he could have fun with.
Reyes is very social — he loves to chat — and enjoys playing with other children. Reyes adores his sisters. He hopes for a family who will help him stay connected to his large family and his Hispanic roots.
Vanessa is very much in favor of adoption, since family means the world to her. She’s incredibly self-aware, and therefore wants to be involved in finding her new family. Ideally, she says, she’d love to find a family with a mom and a dad or two moms who will show her the same type of love she shows to all those around her. Vanessa and Reyes remain close to family and hope to find an adoptive family who’ll continue to nurture those relationships.
Vanessa was born in 2005. Reyes was born in 2013.
