Lilly and Asa are a brother and sister whose hearts are set on being adopted together.
Lilly, the older sibling, is outgoing. She is described as active, fearless and strong-willed. She also has a side she describes as "classy," enjoying getting her nails done and putting on makeup. She enjoys karate class, loves art, is entertained by cartoons and feels good helping her foster mother in the kitchen. In school, she performs at grade level and would benefit from support and consistent structure to stay on task.
Lilly is severely allergic to cats and dogs, so families with cats will not be considered but her social worker would consider a family with a hypoallergenic dog.
Asa, the younger brother, unlike his big sis, has an introverted personality. He also likes karate class, indoor activities such as mind-stimulating games regarding problem-solving, drawing and playing with cars. He also loves outdoor activities such as going to the park. In school, Asa performs above average compared to his peers.
Legally freed for adoption, Lilly and Asa will bring joy to a home that can provide them with structure, consistency and freedom to express their emotions. They will do well in a loving two-parent family as the only or youngest children.
