Subject: Steve's Families 4 Kids, Meet Angel

 

Age: 11    Story:  Angel is a beautiful, outgoing young lady. She is a polite child who wants to be loved and cared for by someone that genuinely wishes to be her parent. Angel likes to be active and enjoys jumping on the trampoline. She enjoys arts and crafts, making jewelry, traveling to amusement parks, and watching movies.

Angel is not afraid of change and works hard in therapy to learn new coping skills. She can struggle in her relationships and sometimes has difficulty accepting re-direction. Angel enjoys school and is doing well.  She benefits from an Individual Education Plan to assist her with math and reading.

  Angel wants to be adopted by a forever family. She would do well in a home with a strong single parent or two-parent family that can set clear boundaries while giving her the support she needs.

Save our school...WIN a Classic Mustang!

 

 

Dear Steve,

 

My son and I are faithful watchers of your weather forecast.  He has a few pictures of you from the balloon festival and is considering becoming a weatherman! (he's 9)

Micah (my son) goes to a small Christian school here in Santa Fe, NM.  It is a independent school, not affiliated with any churches.  This year we are facing a financial crisis.  We are hosting a major fundraiser to help save the only Christian elementary school here in Santa Fe.  For many of our students, this school is a second home.  They feel safe, love learning, and love learning about God.  On May 3rd we are  hosting a car show, silent auction, and open house.  We are (as parents), trying to sell raffle tickets …the winner will win a 65 classic Ford Mustang.  All proceeds go to the school.  I am asking if you could possibly  help us in any way, or help us spread the word.  There are many ways people can help.  You can find out more on our website at www.sfchristianacademy.com   You can buy a raffle ticket, or make a donation….any help is greatly appreciated.  I am trying to get help in any way I can, and I know you are a supporter of animals and children.  Thank you,

Tyra

Steve's Families 4 Kids/Meet Jayden

12 Story: Jayden is a sweet, loving, energetic child who loves to travel. He enjoys being outside, riding his bike, and taking things apart then putting them back together. Jayden also enjoys spending time with his foster family doing family activities such as shopping and watching movies. He thrives on being part of a normal family routine in which he is a valued member.  Jayden likes to eat macaroni & cheese and bean burritos, but will try almost anything.  Jayden made a smooth transition into middle school where he benefits from an Individualized Education Plan. He enjoys math, computer lab, and likes to ride the school bus with his classmates. He attends weekly therapy and this will need to continue when he is placed with his adoptive family.  Jayden will do best in a two-parent home where there are other children. He needs a family that will be non-reactive, that is patient and calm, and can provide slow, repetitive, consistent guidance. The ideal family should be affectionate, and enjoy spending time together. Having pets would be a great benefit for Jayden.

Steve's Families 4 Kids/Meet Kaitlynn

Age:  7

Story: Kaitlynn is engaging, intelligent, active, and caring. She is eager to learn new things and does so very quickly. Some of Kaitlynn's favorite things are books, dolls, teddy bears, and riding her bike. At mealtime she likes fried chicken, pizza, macaroni and cheese, and salad.  She is allergic to almonds. Kaitlynn has siblings, and she would like to be able to maintain contact with them.   This young lady would benefit from a strong, two-parent family willing to continue working with her to learn good social skills, positive interactions, and how to process and direct her feelings. An experienced family familiar with special needs will be ideal. Kaitlynn would benefit in a home where she is an only child.

Steve's Families 4 Kids, meet Cherish!

Age: 8

Story:  Cherish is a loving child who enjoys engaging in fun projects and activities with her caregivers. She is intelligent and learns new concepts and activities quickly. This young lady is determined and does not give up easily. Some of her favorite things are music, dance, drawing, coloring, and reading books. Her favorite snacks include ice cream and popcorn. Cherish prefers a calm, quiet home and tends to get along better with adults and children older than herself.   Cherish will need a calm, patient family who can be structured and has good boundaries. A two-parent family with Cherish as the youngest child would work well, however, all family types will be considered. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

Meet the "Minimalists" in ABQ Thursday!

It was fun meeting these two guys today, and I think you'll like wehat they have to say about simplifying your life! ss
On Thursday March 13th, Joshua Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus - better known to their 2M+ followers as The Minimalists - will be bringing their 100-city world tour through Albuquerque with an appearance at Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande Blvd. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87107 - 7 PM MDT, FREE).

Dear Mr. Stucker,

On Thursday March 13th, Joshua Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus - better known to their 2M+ followers as The Minimalists - will be bringing their 100-city world tour through Albuquerque with an appearance at Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande Blvd. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87107 - 7 PM MDT, FREE). They have immediate availability for phone interviews (and select availability for in-stdio and on-site interviews on 3/12 & 3/13), and we'd love to explore how we might introduce their timely and important message to your audience in light of their upcoming Albuquerque event.

Josh and Ryan are childhood best friends who not so long ago were the embodiment of upwardly mobile, busy, fashionable, unhealthy, wasteful twenty-somethings. They had big houses, fast cars, six-figure incomes and more clothes, gadgets, and possessions than they had time to play with. And much to their own surprise and horror, they were deeply, seriously, seemingly irrevocably unhappy.

In 2010, they decided to take back control of their lives using the principles of minimalism and founded TheMinimalists.com, where they write about their journey and living life with less money, less stuff, and more meaning. They have featured on CBS This Morning, ABC, NBC, FOX, NPR, CBC, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, FORBES, San Francisco Chronicle, Globe & Mail and many, many more (see: http://smpr.us3.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=7e5e5560d7b142c64b5b42797&id=d3b93b7808&e=1f878336f1).
