Meet Charlie, Billy and Eleanor


“Three points off the backboard!”

The swift sound of a swoosh is suddenly drowned out by a victorious cheer. Brothers Charlie and Billy are standing face to face in front of the basketball hoop in the driveway. Charlie lifts his fist in the air in celebration. Billy rolls his eyes.

“I’ll get you back for that!”

As the two brothers continue their basketball game, their sister Eleanor sits nearby listening to music on the front step. At first glance, the three siblings seem to be leading a pretty regular life. However, one major piece is missing for their story to be complete: a family to call their own.

Charlie (13), Billy (14) and Eleanor (15) are children in the care of The Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) who are currently in need of adoptive parents. An athletic and energetic group of kids, the three of them love to play sports such as basketball, hockey, and soccer.

Charlie is 13 years old and can easily spend hours playing outside with his siblings. Charlie is curious and loves to learn, and consistently achieves good grades. He is currently in grade 8 and is a member of the wrestling team at school.

14-year-old Billy is a kind and polite young man with a playful and energetic side. Sporting carefully styled hair and a charming smile, Billy likes to spend time around people and enjoys being the life of the party. This active teen is currently in grade 10 and plays on his school’s flag football team.

At 15 years old, Eleanor can be described as your typical teenager. She considers herself to be outgoing and social and enjoys hanging out with her friends and spending time at the mall. Eleanor is also in grade 10 and involved in a variety of extra-curricular sports and activities at school, such as playing on the field hockey team.

There is nothing in the world these siblings want more than an adoptive family who can welcome them all into their home. While adopting three children at once may seem like an overwhelming adjustment, the deep-rooted bonds already formed between the brothers and sister make it clear that there is no alternative.

We are currently looking for an active, sporty family who is able to provide a nurturing and stable environment for all three siblings. The children have expressed how important it is for them to be adopted together. The siblings have an attachment to the Kanata/West End area that we would love to maintain.
