Friendly Massachusetts Siblings Looking for a Family Are a Package Deal
Nikira and Nacari are siblings who are looking forward to finding their forever home together.
Nikira is a likable and friendly 16-year-old girl who gets along well with adults and peers. Her favorite activities include yoga, cooking, singing, dancing and painting. She also enjoys going to church and loves being a part of her Girl Scouts troop.
When she grows up, Nikira would like to be a teacher because she enjoys reading on her own and to others. She is on the autism spectrum and her teachers describe her as intelligent, talkative and able to follow directions and form relationships with others. Nikira has no behavioral concerns.
Nacari is Nikira's 15-year-old brother. He describes himself as shy, quiet, likable and well-behaved. Others describe him as a sweet, smart and loving boy. His favorite activities include playing basketball and video games.
Nacari's social worker says that he is social and enjoys interacting with peers. Nacari does well in class with extra support and loves going to school. Like his sister, he has shown no behavioral concerns.
Nikira and Nacari will do best in a loving and strong family that is able to provide the siblings with support and set appropriate limits and boundaries. Their social worker is open to exploring families of any makeup and feels the siblings will do best in a home where they can be the youngest or only children.
