Weekly Feature: Jamison and Christopher

Jamison and Christopher

Jamison and Christopher are smart and helpful African American brothers who make friends easily and enjoy cultivating those relationships, both old and new. They also enjoy playing on their electronics, listening to Kidz Bop music, and watching sporting events and sports-related shows (like ‘Space Jam’). At school, where they both earn good grades, get along well with their peers, love learning, and identify math as their favorite subject, Jamison and Christopher, who credit their teachers with making learning fun, are described as respectful and a joy to have in their respective classrooms. Future architect or engineer Jamison, born in 2011, is a positive, articulate, and inquisitive child who is a talented artist who loves building, creating, and drawing. He wants to build a go-kart. He also enjoys jumping on a trampoline, playing ‘Battleship’ and with Nerf toys, watching ‘Encanto’, and playing and watching sports. His favorite sport is basketball, but he would like to play football too. His favorite teams are the Hornets, Falcons, and Cowboys. Christopher, born in 2014, is a well-behaved and affectionate child who enjoys drawing, spending time with his brother, playing soccer, and watching the Warriors, Chiefs, and Braves play. He would like to learn how to swim and build a bike from scratch. Jamison and Christopher need a loving adoptive family who will give them the attention, support, encouragement, structure, and nurturing environment they need to continue to thrive and reach their goals.
