Elijah would best be described as an artistic little man who loves to color and attend his art class at school. If he isn’t coloring, or painting, he plays video games. He is pleasant, courteous to his caregivers, and energetic. Ask Elijah and he’ll say he’s funny, and it shows when he tells his favorite jokes. Some of Elijah’s favorite video games are Cars 2, Transformers, and Speed Racer. Speed Racer has influenced him so much, he hopes to become a race car driver when he grows up! When he’s not playing video games or coloring, Elijah entertains himself watching television shows such as SpongeBob and Bubble Guppies or movies like Transformers and Scooby Doo. Elijah also likes to play outside, especially with his superhero toys.Find Out More
About the kids...
Most of our kids who are available and waiting for adoption in Hamilton County are older than 10. Younger kids usually are adopted by their extended family or their foster parents. The younger kids who are available for adoption are typically parts of sibling groups.
The children in our care have experienced some level of abuse or neglect, or they come from families who are not able to care for them because of unfortunate circumstances. Being in foster care has allowed HCJFS to provide for their safety and well-being.
But in spite of all they've been through, the children in our care are much like any others. They like to hang out with their friends, they have favorite toys and TV shows.
They also have hopes and dreams - especially for permanent, loving families that will provide them with the safety, stability and unconditional commitment that they deserve.
