This is Placido.

He is a 6-year-old boy.

Note: Placido is part of a sibling group and must remain with his siblings, Samuel, Zaylynn & Alex P.

Meet Placido!  Placido is a young outdoorsman. Nobody enjoys a camping and fishing excursion like Placido! His goal is to play on a football team, just like his brother whom he looks up to. Being very energetic, he is a very good wrestler and has used this as a positive physical outlet. He is also open to other sports activities and would likely excel at anything he puts his mind to. Placido very much needs a family that is willing to provide a nurturing environment for him and his siblings, to keep them together.

Before submitting this form, please make sure you are willing and able to meet these requirements.

Note: Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) has ceased offering the non-relative Adoption Only program. CYFD does continue to offer the Foster Care program. The Foster Care Program differs in that that the goal of the program is to ultimately reunite the child with their biological parent while the child is in your care for approximately a year. Should you become a Foster Parent it is also a possibility that the children that you foster may become available for adoption.
