Featured Family: Randall and Christine
Hi, we are the Wirkkala Family! We have been wanting to adopt for a long time. We would like to adopt a single child or a sibling group of up to four children, age 15 yrs. and younger, of any gender, race or ethnicity. We would love to welcome the child(ren), biological parents and/or significant relationships such as previous Foster Parents, into our family so long as it is a healthy connection for the child(ren) and will help them to continue to thrive. We feel very strongly that sibling groups should stay together as we believe in the strength and stability of family. A single child or a sibling group that has similar interests, hobbies, and passions as us and a strong desire to stay together, wanting to be adopted into a forever family to be loved, cherished and accepted for who they are individually and/or as a sibling group, would be a great match for our family! We are open to most mild and moderate medical and special needs that are not terminal and will allow them to live independently as adults. However we are always open for discussion.
