Editor's Note: Window on the Clearwater has joined the Wednesday's Child network to help spread the word about children that are waiting for families to give them the loving care that they need. Each Wednesday we will profile a different child. For more information about Wednesday's Child and how you can be involved check the web site at: http://www.icwrtc.org/wednesdays-child-1.
Kaden (11), Cayson (9), Traysten (8) and Calimay (7)
Are you hoping to build your family all at once through adoption? If so, these 4 special siblings may be just who you've been searching for!
Kaden, the oldest of the bunch, is very much into sports. He likes football and basketball and wants a family who will encourage him to play team sports. Kaden recently learned to snow ski and says that he can't wait to tackle figuring out how to snow board! He dreams of one day becoming a professional athlete. Kaden describes his ideal home as one where he can count on his adoptive parents to meet all of the needs of his younger brothers and sister so that he can just relax and concentrate on being a kid himself.
Next in line, Cayson is a very outgoing boy who loves outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, bike riding and going to the beach. Cayson doesn't mind that he has to wear glasses because he understands that he needs them to be the best he can be when it comes to other things he enjoys, like painting and building things with wood. Cayson loves lasagna and hopes to be a construction worker when he grows up!
Traysten is a rambunctious boy who also has a sweet and nurturing side. As a middle child, Tray can sometimes feel "a little lost in the crowd". When Tray is feeling this way, he responds really well to extra one on one attention just to let him know how special he is. Tray loves roller skating, riding bikes, building with Legos, and pretending to be a super hero, a Ninja Turtle or a Pokemon character with his friends. Tray enjoys school and is looking forward to being a professional dirt bike rider when he gets older.
Beautiful Calimay is a very bright girl with an endearing, although currently toothless, grin. She loves to be in the kitchen baking with her foster mom and her favorite food is ice cream. Growing up with three older brothers, Calimay likes to do many of the same things they enjoy such as bike riding, camping, swimming at the beach and playing with Legos. She loves animals- especially cows, horses and cats. Cali is a strong reader and likes to read Disney stories. She dreams about going on a trip to Disneyland with her new family. Calimay would love to take dance or gymnastics classes once she gets settled into her new home and she is super excited about the possibility of having an older sister! This outgoing and always inquisitive little girl wants to become a police officer one day.
The children's permanency team is actively searching for a family who will keep these bonded siblings together. Parents who are structured, patient, energetic and fun-loving and who have an in-depth understanding of the many ways in which childhood trauma can present itself, would go far in helping these amazing siblings heal from their past and move forward into the healthy and happy future they all deserve.
