Waiting Children

These children featured here are in Centerstone’s Therapeutic Foster Care Program and are in the full guardianship of the State of Tennessee. They are showcased here because they haven’t yet found their forever family. Might that family be yours?  For more information on adopting one of these children, please call Barbara Pennington at 615-478-8732. It’s OK if you aren’t already a foster parent. She can connect you with one of our Foster Home Coordinators in your area to help get you started.


Dezarae and Mishayla


Meet Dezarae and Mishayla

Dezarae just turned 14 and Mishayla is 10. These girls enjoy an active lifestyle and would prefer a family that lives in the city. Dezarae enjoys sports of all kinds, particularly basketball, softball, and volleyball. She’s also played soccer. She really likes dogs and is very soft-spoken. She sometimes likes to be “girly” but prefers to be comfortable. Mishayla is an honor roll student who wants to participate in cheerleading or dance. She is a “girly-girl” who is very soft-spoken. She hopes her new family will let her have a puppy. The girls enjoy community and school events.

If you are interested in providing a loving adoptive home for Dezarae and Mishayla, call Barbara, our adoptions manager, at: 615-478-8732.
