Texas Children


We’re cool and funny and like to have fun! We like being active and getting to go places.



Tommy and Talisha are so close that they are often mistaken for twins. They are typical siblings who like to joke and tease with one another. They are also very competitive. Tommy and Talisha make up competitive games all the time, like who can eat the hot pepper quickest or who can run to the flag and back fastest. There is always good hearted banter between them and lots of laughs. Tommy is very protective of his sister and is quick to get her back on track. Tommy is very affable, polite and kind to everyone. He has a calmness to him that draws people in. Talisha is much more reserved than her brother. She is also polite but once comfortable can be very silly. Talisha looks up to her brother and sees him as her biggest supporter and best friend.



HI! I’m cool and funny! I like to play basketball and enjoy being outside.



Tommy is a typical teenage boy who has never met a stranger. He enjoys playing basketball and would love to be part of a basketball team. It is his passion to play. He greatly enjoys when someone takes the time to support him in his true passion for the sport of basketball by practicing with him and play with him on the court. He loves when someone plays with him while teaching fundamentals that can help him strive to a higher level. Tommy also enjoys riding his bike and playing video games. He considers himself an "expert" on Dragonball Z. Tommy is so kind, polite, and an all-around genuine person. He is truly a great kid who loves his siblings.



Tommy needs a family with an active lifestyle who will actively play and watch him play basketball as well as other extracurricular activities. Tommy needs a family who holds education to a high standard and who is willing to put in extra effort to help keep him on track with his schooling. Tommy needs a family who will build up his confidence and offer clear and appropriate boundaries. He wants a family to love and support him and offer him encouragement, kindness, and respect.



Hi! I love to make people laugh and like to do creative things. I like to play games, shop, and watch movies. I’m learning how to sew.



Talisha is a typical teenage girl who has many interests. She enjoys crafts, trying new foods, shopping, and texting with friends. Talisha is very interested in learning to create her own clothing. She has been taking some beginner sewing classes and recently stated that she would love to have her own clothing store one day. Talisha is very polite, yet reserved, when she is meeting someone new or is in an unfamiliar location. Once she feels safe and becomes more comfortable, she will warm up. Talisha likes to tell stories and talk about her interests. She and her brother remain very close. She truly misses seeing her brother on a daily basis.



Talisha needs a family with a strong mother figure, but someone who can still laugh and have fun with her. She needs a family who she can learn to depend on and trust to be there for her. She will benefit from a family who values education. An active lifestyle will also benefit Talisha. She needs to see that hard work has many rewards. Watching and participating in sports, dance, and family outings, or vacations will also be a plus.



Tommy and Talisha will thrive in an active family who will spend quality time with them, believe in them and stick by them. They both need a Christian family who holds education in high regard and is willing to help with any short comings in a positive manner. Tommy and Talisha need to see and understand what healthy relationships can look like. Both children will benefit from a family who has clear boundaries and clear consequences for breaking those boundaries.
