Chase and Journie get along well and will thrive in a family with or without other children. Journie has often taken a parental role toward Chase, so her forever family will work with her to establish her role as a sister instead of caregiver to her brother. She can be slow to trust others to care for Chase. Once the siblings are comfortable, they both tend to connect easily to their caregivers and will thrive with parents who provide the patience, support, attention, nurturing, and stability they need. Chase will need time to adjust to having caregivers other than his sister. The ideal family will set consistent rules, boundaries, and expectations while still encouraging them to enjoy the joys of childhood.
