Children of the Month - Michael, Jamon, Jamarion and Talishia

Michael, Jamon and Jamarion
Birthdates: March 2006, November 2009, August 2010

Michael, the oldest, is described as being energetic, a leader and smart. He enjoys riding his bike and jumping on the trampoline, and is becoming more into sports. Michael needs a family to keep him active and help him let off some of his energy. Michael has learned coping skills and ways to express himself appropriately. He also needs a family who will understand the impact the loss of losing his biological mother has on him.

Jamon is described as being very friendly, energetic and mischievous at times. He is currently in first grade and has been doing well overall and tries hard to earn “green” on his behavior management system. He is very affectionate to those he knows and loves. Jamon loves animals, trucks, playing with toys, and running around. He is very interested in superheroes. Jamon has some developmental needs as well as some medical needs, which prevent him from playing or engaging in physical contact sports.

Jamarion is a friendly, affectionate, and sweet young boy. He plays well by himself and has a pretty good attention span, but loves being with other people and interacting. He loves to do anything his brothers are doing, and has shown an interest in taking photos, stating “maybe he will be a photographer”. He is currently in first grade and is doing well.

These siblings are a joy to be around, are full of energy, and are bonded with each other as well as their older sister, Talisha. These four children want to be together, but we have not yet found one family for all four children. It is possible to keep all four siblings together, or to adopt only Talishia. If Talishia is adopted separately from the boys, our hope would be that any family considering her would also support and encourage a relationship with her brothers.

Talishia
Birthdate: February 2003


Talishia is happy, inquisitive, and described as having a smile that can light up a room. She loves interacting and playing with her siblings and others. Talishia strives not to let her disabilities stop her from being a normal kid and does her best to do anything any other child can. While she is in a wheelchair, she loves to do as much as she can with the other kids!

Talishia’s favorite things include playing with dolls and mega-blocks, coloring, playing games with other kids and watching movies. During visits with her siblings, she loves when her brothers play with her, and likes to throw a ball with them. Talishia is always very grateful for the opportunities to go out and do things with her siblings. She always says please and thank you and shows excitement when she’s getting picked up! She is very friendly and will talk to anyone who will listen.

Talishia is part of a large sibling group. Talishia has three older sisters. One lives on her own, and two are being adopted by their foster parents. She also has three younger brothers named Michael, Jamon, and Jamarion, who have a photolisting on the AdoptUSKids website (SZH188128). These four children want to be together, but we have not yet found one family for all four children. It is possible to keep all four siblings together, or to adopt only Talishia. If Talishia is adopted separately from the boys, our hope would be that any family considering these her would also support and encourage a relationship with her brothers and sisters.

These siblings are a joy to be around, care for each other and are bonded well with each other. They each have their own individual personalities, strengths and needs. They are all very bonded with their current parents and each other.
