Siblings Sylvia and Sebastian (not their real names but these are their actual photos) — 12 and 15 years old, respectively — are a smart and athletic pair with a range of talents and interests. Currently living in a group foster home in Bulgaria, they are ready for a permanent home with a loving American family.
Sylvia has good coordination and motor development, loves fast-paced games and takes an active part on a group basketball team. Her fine motor skills are particularly well developed, she writes beautifully and enjoys making beaded necklaces. Sylvia’s vocabulary, analytical thinking and memory are all very good and she really enjoys computer and board games. She maintains good relationships with her peers and likes spending time with friends and coordinating her clothing.
At school, Sylvia does well on all her main subjects and seeks help from her teachers and foster parents as needed. Sylvia is described as “sociable, gregarious and strong-willed,” and has an occasional problem with school discipline and compliance with rules and regulations. All-in-all, a pretty typical preteen girl!
Sebastian is an excellent soccer player who maintains good friendships and loves interacting with his peers. He is described as “calm, with a good attention span and high-level social communication skills.” Along with having many friends, Sebastian is also able to build trusting relationships with adults. He has a well-established emotional relationship with his biological sister, Sylvia.
Sebastian has been doing very well academically, showing independence and a variety of interests, including sports and art. Along with his sister, Sebastian has participated in local and national group folk and pop song competitions and festivals. They also help in the home with household chores.
