Biography
Three times the love, three times the joy, three times the fun! Leon, Stacy, and Ottis are a terrific sibling group of three looking for their forever family to share life's adventures with.

Meet Leon: kind, gentle and responsible. Leon has quite a captivating personality and feels that his best quality is his humor. He has a heart of gold and would do anything for his siblings, whom he cares for deeply. Leon has an eye for creativity and enjoys drawing in his sketchbook. He also appreciates the beauty that the world has to offer; he dreams of going to Japan to see the cherry blossoms and Texas because he’s heard how beautiful it is there! As much as he likes to ride the bike he built for himself, he also enjoys leisurely activities like chatting with his friends on Zoom and mastering his favorite video games, Minecraft and Fortnite! Leon is easy going and his only preferences for a family are that he be placed with his younger siblings, maintain contact with his oldest sister, and that a family supports him and has realistic expectations about his educational needs.

Meet Stacy: fun, bubbly, and super-duper cute. Stacy has an affinity for all things pink, girly & unicorn related, and would love to grow her collection of LOL dolls. While she doesn’t like the idea of getting dirty, she does love being outside in nature and enjoys looking at the flowers and plants in her backyard. Riding bikes, going for walks, or even playing badminton are some of the things she would like to do with her family. Like her siblings, Stacy enjoys being creative with her favorite subject in school being art. Stacy needs some additional supports in school, but enjoys attending school in person for the interactions with her teachers and is particularly proud when she achieves high marks. Stacy enjoys singing and will break into song at any opportunity she gets. She greatly enjoys and flourishes with positive attention and connections with the adults in her life and expressed that she just wants a family who will love and want her back.

Meet Ottis: sweet, friendly, and engaging. He is playful and has fun participating in games; he has a competitive side to him and his smile when he realizes he’s won the game will make your heart melt! Ottis very much admires his big brother and enjoys many of the same things, particularly eating pizza and playing video games together. Playing Talking Tom on his tablet is one of his other favorite things to do. Like his siblings, he is also very creative and loves to draw pictures of things that have happened in his day. Ottis also enjoys the summertime so that he can be outside, especially so that he can jump on the trampoline. A family for Ottis should be able to provide structure and routine for which he truly thrives on.

Leon, Stacy, and Ottis are looking for a forever family who will embrace them and support them as they journey towards permanency. It is very important to them that they have the opportunity to remain and grow up together.

Parental rights have been terminated for Leon, Stacy, and Ottis.
