Joshua and Loralie love spending time together!

Get to know Joshua! Zooming around town on his bicycle is his idea of a perfect afternoon, and he longs for his own dirt bike one day. A natural storyteller, Joshua is fond of socializing, spending time with his sister, watching action movies, and playing sports with friends. He owns a guitar and would enjoy an opportunity to take lessons someday soon. He prefers dining on pizza and cookies, and blue is his color of choice. Joshua is currently in the fourth grade.

If you’re looking for Loralie, there’s a good chance she’s playing with her dolls! This bright and shy child adores her dolls and especially loves playing with her dollhouse. Loralie can often be found curled up in a cozy spot, getting lost in her best-loved books. Brownies are her ideal dessert, and she favors the color black. Loralie is academically on target in the second grade.

A two-parent family in a rural location, who have pets in the home is preferred; however, their caseworker will consider all family types. Loralie has expressed a desire to be in a home that will provide her with a supportive mother figure, and Joshua would like to live on a farm with lots of property to ride a dirt bike. We only accept inquiries on the sibling pair, who will be placed together. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.


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