Alex & Simon | Uplift Family Services

Alex & Simon

At just five years of age, Alex and Simon were removed from their home due to abuse and severe neglect. The boys were physically and verbally aggressive, distrusting of others, and continually running away from home, so they were placed with a Professional Parent while the team began searching for a loving, permanent home.

Eventually, a resource family interested in adoption was identified, and Alex and Simon’s team provided extensive support to stabilize the boys’ new home environment, improve their behaviors, and support their mental health needs. One of the family’s goals was to get the boys consistently following directions so they could take a vacation, and eventually, their behaviors stabilized, then flourished, and they were able to travel to Disneyland. Today, Alex, Simon, and their loving resource parents have graduated from our program and are on their journey to adoption and becoming a forever family!
