Wednesday’s Child: Tia And Elease
BOSTON (CBS) – Tia and Elease are 12-year-old twin sisters of African American and Caucasian descent who hope to be placed together.
Always up for an adventure, the girls would like to find a family who is energetic and full of life. They girls can be shy, especially when first getting to know someone new; Elease is more talkative of the two.
Tia is described as a “girly girl” who enjoys swimming and participating in an after school program. She also likes using the computer and watching television. When asked, Tia describes herself as “a playful kid” who gets along with her peers as well as with younger children. She wants to be a doctor, a veterinarian or a police officer when she grows up. Tia is in a regular classroom in school where she receives special education services. Tia is using therapy well to process her losses and prepare for eventually meeting a new family.
WBZ-TV’s Jack Williams reports
Elease is a sweet, kind girl who is a self-described tomboy. She enjoys playing basketball and also likes arts and crafts. Elease acts younger than her age and receives special education services to address her social and academic struggles. Like her sister, she states her future ambition is to become a veterinarian. Elease is also in therapy to address emotional needs. Elease would like to have other siblings as well as pets in her new home.
Tia and Elease’s forever family should help identify and support the girls’ individual interests, as well as understand the special bond between twins. Legally free for adoption, the girls will also need to maintain their relationship with their older brother.
