Shyann is growing up fast in foster care. She is taking etiquette classes to learn how a young lady should act. She would love to have a forever family to help her with these life skills, she wants a mom and a dad… she needs a mom. Shyann is this week’s Kids to Love.
13 year old soft spoken Shyann lives up to her name. She’s in the 6th grade.
Shyann: “I like math, science, that’s all.” Lee: “What do you like to do for fun?”
Shyann: “I like to play basketball, softball and track.”
She also likes to sing in the choir at church.
Shyann’s been in foster care for 2 years…and 4 homes.
Lee: “Do you know what foster care means?”
Shyann: “It means that when you go into a home and there’s a family that cares about you and want to adopt you.”
Lee: “Is that something you want?”
(Shyann shakes head yes)
Lee: “If you could pick any kind of family, what kind of family would you pick?”
Shyann: “I want a family that cares about me that loves me that won’t do the same thing my own parents did.”
She wants to find a family that will see her the way she sees herself.
Shyann: “I’m fun person, I help people, I love playing with children, I also wanna have a baby sister and a baby brother.”
And a dog
Shyann: “Aa german shepherd or a poodle.’
