Larasia and Janasia are vivacious eight-year-old twins. Although they share many qualities, they also are very different. They both enjoy roller skating, ballet, swimming and attending church. Janasia likes music, while Larasia prefers art projects.
Both girls are very social and make friends easily. They are cheerful and respectful to adults, whom they want to please. Larasia is more laid back than her sister. They enjoy going to school and are enrolled in regular education classes.
Larasia and Janasia reside in the same foster placement. They have two brothers, Quason, 11, and Daequan, 10 (profiled last week), who are in a different foster placement. The siblings have experienced trauma in their past and need the love, consistency and stability that a permanent family could provide. Their greatest wish is to be adopted by the same family so they can grow up together.
Adoptive parents do not need to have a specific income and they do not need to own their own homes. This kind of adoption is virtually free and many of the children are eligible for financial subsidy.
