SUNDAY’S CHILDREN

Sunday’s Children are Arneiza and Arn

We are Arneiza and Arn. We love each other very much.

Arneiza and Arn are siblings who need to be placed together. They live in separate foster homes but see each other regularly and hope to grow up together.

Arneiza is a smart, friendly, and likable 10-year-old who responds well to structure, routine, and consistency. She does well in school with the support of an Individualized Education Program. She is a sensitive girl with low self-esteem who aims to please others because of the effects of her trauma history. Arneiza enjoys being social and participating in group activities. She is very active on a color guard squad and enjoys swimming and bowling. She also has started off a Red Sox game with the “Play ball!” call.

Arn is a charismatic and active 8-year-old. He enjoys being the center of attention and knows how to make people laugh. Like his sister, Arn is very intelligent and does well in school with the support of an educational program. He does best with one-on-one attention because of his hyperactive and impulsive behavior; he is described as a boy with very little fear. He is very active and athletic and enjoys karate, swimming, playing video games, watching movies, and reading the Sunday paper.
