Meet Ahdees, Age 11, Taichionna, Age 10, and Rashad, Age 8
Ahdees is the oldest in this sibling group and is a big fan of outdoor activities and video games. Pizza and chicken are at the top of the menu every night if you ask Ahdees! Taichionna is the middle sibling, and she loves gardening, crafts, and playing with her Barbies. She enjoys eating all sorts of fruits – which aligns with her love of gardening, and she’s right at home at your local farmers market. Rashad is the youngest, loves playing basketball, and is wild about cars. Want Rashad to clean his plate? Fill it with chicken nuggets and pour him a tall glass of chocolate milk to wash it all down.
The siblings have their struggles, but nothing out of the ordinary for kids their ages in their circumstances. Ahdees strives to be less impulsive and respect boundaries. Taichionna is working hard on using better judgment and making better decisions. And Rashad is making strides in communicating what he wants and needs more clearly. They are each progressing steadily and looking forward to sharing their successes with you! They’ll need a two-parent home with structure and consistent routines. If you can provide that, along with a steady diet of love and support – and chicken nuggets, fresh fruit, and pizza, of course – these siblings will continue to thrive!
In partnership with Project Zero and Arkansas Heart Gallery, each month Do South will feature a waiting child, or sibling group, in foster care in Arkansas. To inquire about these incredible children, please visit theprojectzero.org.
