Introducing Dakota and Michael! Dakota and Michael are a sibling set of teens looking for a family where they can stay together. They are both very active and enjoy being outside. They both describe themselves as “very country” and like listening to country music, riding on 4-wheelers, and working with their hands. They both are very interested in and enjoy working on cars and motorcycles.
Dakota is described as “active and likes doing things.” She wants to be close with her caregivers, spending time, hanging out, or going to the store with them. She is always up for a trip to do “whatever”. Her favorite country musician is Chase Matthews because, “I got to go see him”. She loves 4-wheelers because they are “fast and fun”. She enjoys watching movies and reading the occasional book. Recently, she had read The Outsiders, and enjoys it quite well. She loves the colors black, blue, and red. She loves dogs and cats and currently spends a lot of time with the dogs in her current placement. One of her favorite shows is Dr. Who, specifically “the 11th doctor”, and she loves to sing along with the radio.
Dakota’s favorite subject in school right now is agriculture. She is able to work with chickens at the school and is helping her class come up with a new animal to add. She voted for a fox. She loves to color and doodles for fun when she’s bored. Dakota has just begun learning the guitar. When she thinks about her future, she would like to be a truck driver or a mechanic. She loves working on cars. She also loves to talk, is friendly, and is very attached to her brother, Michael.
Michael is the younger sibling. He is very close with his sister and very much wishes to be adopted with her. Like Dakota, he gets a lot of enjoyment from working on car or motorcycle engines. Agriculture is also his favorite subject in school, “because we don’t really have to do anything”. He also likes that he is outside during this class. Michael loves to ride his bicycle and likes working and maintaining it too. He loves to go fishing, ride his skateboard, and just be outside. When asked what he is most proud of, he said, “I’m proud to be able to fix things”. He is very good with Legos and loves putting kits together as well as coming up with his own designs. His sister said, “Michael can put a kit together, take it apart, and then put it back together again without reading any of the directions”. She is very impressed with this skill.
Michael has a curious nature when it comes to fixing things. Building things is his true passion! He wants to know how things work while also enjoying his solitude. He likes to play video games such as Mine Craft and other farming/agricultural based games. He likes to watch funny videos, and he said with a big smile, that he would like to go to Disney.
They would like to find a family where they can stay together, have fun, and grow to their full potential.
