Portrait of Elijah

  • Birth Year: 2005
  • Child ID: 206848
Elijah, who likes to go by “Eli,” adores cats! This feline-friendly teen says that video games are one of his favorite things to do. Eli is keen on eating Chinese food and likes red best. Gravity control or the ability to fly are the perfect superpowers in Eli’s mind. This teen thinks that Mario and Link are the ultimate heroes when it comes to video games. Those who know Eli best remark that he is a loyal and kindhearted child. He has positive relationships with adults and peers. Eli eagerly awaits the day that he can obtain his driver’s license.

Math is this tenth grader’s favorite class.

Eli would do best in a family with a mom and a dad, with pets in the home; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He will need to remain in contact with his siblings following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.


For Missouri children, both home studied and non-home studied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only home studied families from other states should do so.
