Mekhi and Lakin delight in times where they can read long books to their foster dad!

Caring and always ready to lend a helping hand is what Lakin is all about! He delights in making other people laugh, and people consider him a funny fellow. For other ways to have fun, Lakin loves playing football and kickball. He also never turns down a chance to get on his bicycle and zoom around his yard. Takis are a treat Lakin loves to munch on, and his most requested meal includes a slice or two of pizza. Red is his favorite color, and he lights up when he sees a dog. Lakin’s hero is Batman, and he wants to have the gift of flight if he could choose a superpower for himself. He maintains positive relationships with peers and adults. Lakin is a first-grader who gets excited for recess time and enjoys reading and math.

Mekhi is a daredevil who loves trying new adventures! He enjoys showing off his riding skills and thinks that flying would be the ultimate power. It’s probably why he admires Superman so much. Mekhi is interested in video games and toy cars but never passes up an opportunity to play football or kickball. He adores dogs and tends to choose blue as his favorite color. Like his older brother, Takis and pizza disappear quickly when Mekhi is hungry, and he loves being a goofball to get others to laugh. Peers and adults get along well with this kiddo. He is a social kindergartner who likes recess.

Lakin and Mekhi would do best in a family with a mom and a dad, in which they are the youngest children in the home; however, their caseworker will consider all family types. 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.
