Antonio, Ashanti and Robert

Antonio
Antonio’s an all-around cool kid who gets along with everyone. He’s got a friendly, open personality that enables him to be comfortable with all kinds of crowds, and his infectious curiosity livens up the motions of everyday life. Drawing is his absolute favorite thing to do, and he plans to match this with his love of writing and become a cartoonist when he grows up. Antonio has a very hopeful outlook on life, and tackles whatever difficulties he may face with optimism and energy. He’s really looking forward to having a dad who will play with him and help him with his homework, and to living in a neighborhood with lots of other kids.

Ashanti
Ashanti’s a super sweet and affectionate girly-girl, who loves her big brother tremendously. A lot of different things make this girl happy, including books, music, playing at the park, and (most especially) a pan of brownies fresh from the oven! She’s a talented singer and dancer, and thinks that she’d like to be an entertainer when she grows up. Ashanti really enjoys one on one attention, and she’s looking forward to having a mom to spend quality time with. She’s a caring and kind little girl who lives to give love, and who deserves a lot of love in return. These three great kids will thrive in a caring, experienced, two-parent home. Their talents and great personalities will flourish under consistent encouragement and love.

Robert
Robert is a special little boy who, despite the struggles he faces, loves to be loved. Like many kids his age, he has a playful and fun attitude towards just about anything, and though he can be shy with strangers those who take the time to know him well are rewarded by his sweet and sensitive nature. He likes to paint and draw, and shows a great amount of determination when trying new things, such as recently learning to ride a bike. With this inherent perseverance, there is no telling what Robert will be able to do in his life and may end up “surprising us all.” Robert will thrive in an experienced and loving two-parent household with his older brother and sister.

Meet Jaylan and Mi'luv

Jaylan and Miluv

Brother and sister duo Jaylan and Mi'luv are a giggly pair that fiercely watches out for one another. The two are so synced up that they sometimes even finish each other's sentences. Jaylan loves football – "and basketball, too!" little sister pipes in – and pepperoni pizza and giraffes. "They have long legs and they like to eat a lot," Jaylan explains.

Mi'luv agrees that pizza is the best, but finds zebras, Hannah Montana and Power Rangers more to her liking. Both wish to one day visit faraway lands, like "Africa or Jamaica," whispers Mi'luv. "Or Texas," suggests Jaylan. Why Texas? "I want to ride a bull," he says. "And no matter how many times I fall off, I'm gonna get right back on and try again!"

The two hope for a forever home together, one where they can exchange snuggles and hugs with their new mom and dad, and where they can continue to share secrets, and also to grow, laugh and daydream together about traveling across the Sahara – Jaylan on a giraffe, Mi'luv on a zebra.

Day 14

Meet Tierra

Iierra

America's Got Talent has got some real competition if Tierra ever sets foot on their stage! This honor roll student has an undeniable aptitude for education, drama and music. Her singing alone has earned her star status among peers. Like some of Hollywood's young stars, Tierra too, has made some wonderful choices, taken some missteps and has been misled by those she trusted most. Unlike a reality talent show, Tierra is hoping to discover the family who has what it takes to be her leading light. She would benefit from a family that values education, appreciates the arts and who is proud of their African American culture. The families that will be considered for this up and coming star should be able to provide her with unconditional love, structure, and support and will provide her with the skills on how to be a part of a family and show her that commitment daily. Tierra will benefit from the stability of a loving family who will help her to maintain contact with her siblings in the future. Interested families should also be willing participate in counseling with Tierra to help her deal with the multiple losses, improve behaviors and show her the true meaning of love, affection and how to be a part of a family that will last a lifetime.
