Once you've made the commitment to adopt, the number of children isn't so important. Especially when it's the sibling set of three Dave Courvoisier is introducing us
There was no end to the fascination of the pizza-making process at Grimaldi's Restaurant when we were there the other day.
This sibling set of three watched cooks, then got the chance to try it themselves, and found out it wasn't so easy.
11-yr-old Grace is the oldest, and keeps a close eye on her siblings.
"They're very bonded, Grace protects her siblings...she understands that she needs to be there for her siblings, she's very bonded to her siblings...she's a straight-A student," says Gina, an adoption recruiter for the Clark County Division of Family Services.
Grace also has a very well-defined goal in life:
"I'm going to be a marine biologist when I grow up.."
Next is her younger brother Aaron, who is 7-and-a-half.
"Aaron likes everything...he he he...would even like to have a pet shark, so if there's anyone out there who has a shark, he would love you," Gina adds with a laugh.
And the youngest -- Ashley -- with those big dimples and blue eyes -- will be 6 later this year.
"She's an easy-going kid, she likes to uh, she loves all the attention, so she is a baby, and she will let you know... She wants that attention, she has a lot of energy with that as well," adds Gina.
These three understand how important it is for them to have the right parents. Grace told me they want: "...Somebody who's nice, and who actually um, cares about us, and who, um, and um makes us do the right thing, and teaches us integrity."
"But we do want people to know that, bringing in these kids, and having the ability to meet their needs is the best um, that we're looking for, because we want to make sure our kids are definitely loved, but also to meet their needs," says Gina.
A permanent home is being actively sought for these three. If you think you have the room and the love, and the energy needed to be their adoptive parents, please call the local office of the Adoption Exchange at 436-6335.
