Hello everyone!!  This is my friend Ryan.  He is eleven years old and loves to help taking care of animals at his current foster parents’ home.  He hasn’t always been around animals and he is learning that they are friendly, they have personalities, and they accept him.  Ryan loves playing with his toys and loves putting things together. Ryan is very good at putting Legos and other things together with following the directions and pictures that come with toys.  Ryan also loves to draw and has a great memory when he draws something.  He can be really detailed and likes to have his drawings hung up.  Ryan is currently involved in gymnastics and is enjoying the socialization with other students but also learning how his body can react to different positions.  He has recently stated that he enjoys going hiking and fishing. 

Ryan needs a permanent home, and he would like to have a mom and a dad.  He may want siblings because he has been an only child.  Ryan does have some special needs that a family would have to be able to spend time with him.  If you are interested in becoming Ryans’ forever family, please contact Kim Dysert at 740-852-6046.

Ryza is a very handsome young man who enjoys trying new things and loves sports.  He is very excited about being in a permanent home.  He doesn’t like animals, especially dogs.  Ryza enjoys trying new things and is learning to care for himself and do Independent Living activities.  Ryza wants to learn how to cook and bake and thinks he could be in a home that has two parents or a single dad.  Ryza would like to be an only child or just one other child, if possible.  Ryza really wants to maintain his relationship with his biological father and siblings and feels that he can grow to love another family, if they give him a chance.  If you are interested in Ryza, please contact Kim Dysert at 740-852-6046 or for more information. 

Let me introduce you to Madyson!

Madyson is a very spunky sixteen-year-old who has discovered false eyelashes and make-up.  Madyson has found that shopping and trying new make-up techniques is something that she enjoys pursuing.  Madyson still enjoys animals of any kind.  She would love to be on a farm and learn about different animals that she could care for.  Madyson has a goal of becoming a Vet Tech or possibly an owner of her own pet rescue someday. 

Madyson has struggled in her trauma in her past and she has a very difficult time in trusting people.  Madyson is learning that she can trust some people, but it takes her a very long time for her to share with someone any pain or joy.  Madyson has made significant progress in the past few months and was moved to a group home where she can start doing more independent living activities to prepare herself for adulthood. 

Madyson has discovered that she wants to pursue being a vegetarian and give up any type of meat.  Madyson is conscious about her eating habits and tries to eat healthy and keep herself in shape. 

Madyson has stated that if there would be a family interested in her, she would have to move slow and she would prefer them living in the county where she might be able to have a dog or other animals that she could call her own. 

Could you be the family I'm looking for?     key heart
