This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


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.’

And a big thank you to Brewer High School and the FCCLA members and instructors.

The student lead organization focuses on community service projects and presented a check for $833 dollars along with socks and t-shirts to our Kids to Love Christmas for the Kids drive.

‘Tis the season to get involved!
