Meet this adorable sibling group of three, Nathaniel (age 7), Eric (age 6), and Persiaus (age 3)!



We would prefer a Native American family, but all families will be considered. The children are members of the Navajo Nation and ICWA applies. Nathaniel: Nathaniel is in 1st grade receiving regular education. His favorite subject is math. He is a busy body when adults are present and likes to be the center of attention. In addition, he does have a short attention span. Eric: He enjoys all subject areas in school and is in KT. He is a bright child academically and socially. He stays on task with whatever he is doing until the task is completed. Persiaus: Persiaus is shy when she meets new people, but will open up after a short time and communicate with them. Persiaus also appears to be a bright child and is curious about her surroundings. Currently, she does not have any developmental delays identified at this time and is in daycare full-time. Please contact me at (505) 327-5316, ext. 1119 or by email at deboraha.yost@state.nm.us, if you are interested in this sibling group. Thank you. Deborah Yost, Adoption Consultant
