Meet Our Kids: Blaine and Brianna

Blaine (14) and Brianna (13) are part of our child-focused recruitment program, which provides intensive social work services to find the best adoptive family for a child by exploring all facets of the child’s family, school, and friendship circles, as well as recruiting potential families from the broader community.

Today in Texas, there are more than 6,000 children in foster care waiting for an adoptive family, including Blaine and Brianna. Could you be the family they are waiting for?

FOX 26 recently featured Blaine and Brianna in one of its Finding Families segments. You can view their segment here.

Did your heart melt when Blaine said it would mean everything to him to be placed in an adoptive home with sister? It melted ours!

Something not shown in the segment, which you could only hear behind-the-scenes, was when Blaine said if a family became available for Brianna only, she should join the family, because the last thing he wants is to stand in the way of his sister finding a forever family.

Some additional highlights include learning a little bit more about Blaine and Brianna:

“Blaine, 14, loves science and wants to be a meteorologist. His sister, Brianna, 13, is focused on becoming a family law attorney. The pair has been in foster care for just about all of their childhood.”

Chelsey Castro, the recruiter and adoption coordinator for Blaine and Brianna said:

“The reason Blaine and Brianna should be adopted together is because they love each other very much, yet have never had an opportunity to be placed together before. Just sitting at a CPS office is the best time for them, because it’s time they get to spend with one another.”
