Shyanne and Travis,11 and 12
More than anything, these two sweet kids want to be together. They look forward to the day a family will provide the love, structure, and support they need. A family's willingness to help them stay connected in some way with extended family will be the cornerstone of building their trust in relationships that last.
Because Shyanne and Travis have missed being together for the past couple of years, they hope for a family that enjoys being with them and having lots of family fun. Being the only children or with a brother or sister much younger than themselves would be a great adoption match.
Shyanne is an active girl who loves animals. She is athletic but is also a "girly-girl" who loves being fashionably dressed, shopping and looking nice.
Shyanne does like to read, but it has not been easy for her. Math is her least favorite subject and science her favorite.
Travis likes to please adults and makes good eye contact with them. He has a great sense of humor and a wonderful smile. He thrives on positive attention from adults. He is enjoyable and happy a lot of the time.
More difficult areas of need are related to times when Travis' behavior may be hard to understand or when he feels less lovable. Simply put, Travis needs patience when folks may feel they have none left. The close supervision of at least one patient at-home parent will be a must.
