Chamie, Charlie and Mandie would do best as the only children in the home. The best fit for these siblings is a family with knowledge of older child adoption who is open to potential unknowns in the siblings’ development. Chamie and Charlie have strabismus (crossed eyes), and Charlie needs further assessments to determine the best care for his needs, which include cognitive and developmental delays. Holt staff have assessed them personally, and are available to share their impressions with any interested prospective adoptive families. Could you or someone you know be the right family for Chamie, Charlie and Mandie?
