He does well with taking direction from authority figures, but does require redirection at times. Elijah says if he were granted three wishes he would like to have infinite pineapple pizza, be with his siblings, and have infinite root beer.
Anna and Elijah are twins who share a special bond with each other. They have a lot of energy and love. They each have their own personalities and bring their own sense of self, but they have a strong attachment to one another. Like many siblings, they have occasional rivalries. They typically play well together, but as they get older, they tend to pick on each other and desire their own space. Anna is a very helpful child and frequently does things for her peers that they can do on their own. Elijah has an entrepreneurial spirit and has begun selling items in order to purchase things he desires. Anna and Elijah want to be adopted together.
Elijah needs a family who is loving, nurturing, and patient with him and his sister. His family needs to be committed and willing to accept him into their family. Elijah's forever family needs to have age-appropriate and realistic expectations.
