Eight-year-old Alice is fearless as she moves smoothly up the rock climbing wall at Sky Zone in Scottsdale and confidently slaps the buzzer.
She then carefully works her way down the wall — and then starts back up. Practice makes perfect and Alice is nothing if not willing to practice.
Cheering her on is younger brother David, 7. And when it’s his turn to tackle the wall, Alice keeps a watchful eye as the protective — and a little bit bossy — big sister.
The siblings form a dynamic duo, says Brianna, a child specific adoption recruiter with Aid to Adoption of Special Kids (AASK).
“Alice is a girly girl,” Brianna says. “She likes all things glittery and sparkly.
“David enjoys playing outside. He is very tidy, and he likes to make his bed every single morning.”
Both are active and giggly. Both do well in school and love routine. Both love macaroni and cheese. The two have never lived without each other.
“They have a very strong relationship together and it’s important that they maintain that relationship throughout their lives,” Brianna says, adding that it is also import the two stay in Arizona.
The siblings would thrive in a forever home that has two parents with an abundance of energy.
“The perfect forever family for Alice and David is one that has the time, patience and understanding to work with them,” Brianna says.
Alice and David would do well in a family with other children, but, because of allergies, they can’t live in a home with cats or dogs.
