Aleeanna and Savannah are legally freed for adoption.

Hi, our names are Aleeanna and Savannah and we would like to be adopted together!

Aleeanna, who likes to go by Alee, is a 14-year-old girl of Caucasian and Hispanic descent. Alee speaks both Spanish and English and is a funny, sassy and outgoing teenager. She enjoys watching television, being outdoors, and running. Alee also spending time with her sister and friends. She is an engaging girl and does well in school with support from school staff.

Savannah, 17, is of Caucasian and Hispanic descent. Like her sister, Savannah speaks English and Spanish. She is kind, easygoing, and creative and likes to help out around the home, spend time with her friends, and watch television. In school, Savannah does best with the academic support she receives.

Savannah and Alee are legally freed for adoption. The siblings will thrive with a family that is patient, understanding, and supportive and have the ability to meet them where they are at. Savannah and Alee would do best in a home with older or younger children as long as they are placed together and in separate rooms. They would prefer a family that will help them maintain contact with biological dad.

Can you provide the guidance, love and stability that a child needs?  If you’re at least 18 years old, have a stable source of income, and room in your heart, you may be a perfect match to adopt a waiting child. Adoptive parents can be single, married, or partnered; experienced or not; renters or homeowners; LGBTQ singles and couples.    

The process to adopt a child from foster care requires training, interviews, and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you, and if so, to help connect you with a child or sibling group that your family will be a good match for.
