Mercedes & Sergio
Meet fun-loving siblings Mercedes and Sergio!
Mercedes, 16, loves to draw and hang out with her friends. She is often described being sweet, helpful, and fun to be around.
Mercedes enjoys riding her hoverboard, drawing, and going boating and fishing with her foster family.
Sergio, 14, is an outgoing bundle of energy with a contagious smile. He recently started working and was promoted after only a month on the job!
Sergio prides himself in caring for his newly adopted pet hamster. He loves to laugh and benefits from staying busy playing football and basketball. He also enjoys spending time with his foster parents learning how to fix things and helping out around the house.
Sergio and Mercedes have quite the sense of humor and you will often find them joking around.
For the 2020-2021 school year Mercedes is in the 9th grade and Sergio is in 8th grade. These siblings receive varying levels of assistance in school.
Parents should be knowledgeable about the effects of trauma on children. A family will need to be able to maintain a consistent, structured environment and provide support to these siblings as they transition to adulthood. They will need to remain close to South Dakota to maintain regular contact with their sibling.
Could you be the ones to welcome them into your family with open arms?
