Biography
Matthew is an energetic boy who loves to be outside playing whenever possible, whether it's kicking around a soccer ball or climbing on things at the park. His favorite sport is basketball, and he'd love someone to shoot hoops with or watch the game, especially if the '76ers are on! Matthew enjoys school and his favorite subject is math. Like most kids his age, he enjoys playing video games on PS4, especially Minecraft and Fortnite. On rainy days, he's happy to relax and watch some SpongeBob Squarepants or play board games with his siblings. As the oldest, Matthew is always looking out for everyone, and has taken on a leadership role in regards to his family group. He is a very talkative boy, and shines when he gets one-on-one attention.

Jason is usually a quiet and serious young man, until it's time to watch football, and then he comes out of his shell! He's a huge fan of the Eagles and would also like to play football himself someday. Jason enjoys going to school and his favorite subject is math. His favorite thing to watch on TV is the cartoon Ed, Edd and Eddy, and he also likes playing board games with his siblings. Jason may seem on the shy side when you first meet him, but once you get to know him, he's an incredible kid!

Ava is a charming and outgoing girl who is a total glamour girl! If you need a spa day or mani and pedi, she would be a great companion. While she loves clothes, beauty and anything and everything pink and sparkly, she loves playing soccer and her favorite thing in school is gym. Ava loves anything to do with LOL Dolls and has quite an impressive collection. Being the only girl in this family group, she has taken on the role of the little "mommy" of the group, and is sweet, compassionate and helpful with her siblings.

Evan is a sweet and sensitive little guy with a smile that will melt your heart! He adores Thomas the Train, and loves watching the TV show as well as playing with trains and tracks. He also loves Mickey Mouse, and watches the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with his cousin Kyle. Like his brother Jason, Evan loves football and is always ready to watch a game. He enjoys playing Roblox on a phone or tablet, and does well at entertaining himself, although he loves playing games, especially Duck, Duck, Goose with his siblings.

Kyle is a very active little ball of energy. He loves being active and outside, whether it's playing tag or soccer with Ava, or climbing on things at the playground. He loves Mickey Mouse, and his favorite show is The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, but he also likes SpongeBob Squarepants as well. He's also a video game lover and likes to play Roblox and Minecraft with Matthew. Kyle is very affectionate, and loves giving and receiving hugs, and is pretty much always smiling.

A loving and patient family is needed, one who has room in their hearts and home for all five children.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Matthew, Jason, Ava, Evan, and Kyle.
