At age 15, Abbey is active and likes to eat healthy. She enjoys soccer, basketball, softball and swimming. Like most teens, she likes to hang out with her friends. She likes many activities and is open to trying new things, food and opportunities. I like all four seasons.
She describes herself as being very smart in and out of school, with math, science, English and history as her favorite subjects. She is also interested in politics and current events.
Abbey would like a family who will love and care for her unconditionally. She says she has learned to control her feelings and remain stable after coming from a rough childhood. She enjoys being with children of all ages. She is helpful with chores and likes to clean and to help out.
Abbey would like her own room and can study in any kind of environment. She keeps in touch with her brothers and sisters and would like that to continue.

Trever, born in July of 1997, is an active, playful boy with a good sense of humor. He is enjoyable to be with and makes friends easily. He likes attention, though he plays alone quite comfortably. A sports enthusiast, he is accomplished at basketball and enjoys soccer and baseball. His academic performance is excellent, with himoften getting straight As. He has been in the gifted-and-talented reading program at his past schools. He is now studying the trombone at middle school.
Other than some seasonal allergies, he is in good physical health and is “off the charts” for height for his age. This is remarkable, considering he is a little selective about what foods he prefers.
Trever would benefit from a two-parent family where he is the oldest child. He will flourish in a home with secure routines and lots of personal attention. He would be a protective older brother and one who respects the property of others and expects his belongings to be protected. He transitions better when allowed some time to get used to new situations, which can create a little anxiety for him.

Abbey and Trever are two of the 149 children currently in Maine Department of Health & Human Service’s care who are seeking an adoptive family; 119 of those children have been waiting for permanency for over a year. Based in Gardiner, A Family for ME is a nonprofit program working in collaboration with Maine DHHS.
