Meet the dynamic duo, Elijah, age 15, and Meliya, age 13, a sibling group looking for a forever home! Elijah is the oldest and has a very witty personality. Like most boys his age, he enjoys sports, outdoor adventures, and playing video games. He loves basketball! In fact, he has mentioned wanting a basketball of his own and perhaps playing on a team. His favorite NBA team is the Los Angeles Lakers! When the weather keeps him indoors, RC video games will do because Elijah also likes race cars. Meliya has a big personality, loves to laugh, and likes attention. In her spare time, she loves to draw, but you can also catch her surfing the web on her tablet or watching TV.
Many children in our care have challenges to overcome, and Elijah and Meliya are no different. When Elijah sets his mind to something, it can be hard to redirect him. However, he is working hard to address these issues. Meliya can be headstrong, but this is nothing abnormal for a teenager. A bit argumentative and defiant at times, she too is working hard to overcome her challenges.
For these reasons, it is important that Elijah and Meliya are placed in a two-parent home where they are the only children, and with a family that will provide structure and discipline combined with patience and love as they come to learn the rules of the house and what is expected of them. Could your family be the right fit for Elijah and Meliya? Submit an inquiry at theprojectzero.org to learn more!
In partnership with Project Zero and Arkansas Heart Gallery, each month Do South will feature a waiting child, or sibling group, in foster care in Arkansas. To inquire about these incredible children, please visit theprojectzero.org.
