Posted: Updated:

It was an afternoon of fun as Antawaine and I went head to head in bowling.  And without revealing the final score, let's just say Antawaine bowling skill It was an afternoon of fun as Antawaine and I went head to head in bowling.  And without revealing the final score, let's just say Antawaine bowling skills far out weigh mine.  This 13 year old is athletic, musically talented, and an intelligent youth.

 

"Swim, play my guitar, " Antawaine said.

Playing guitar is something Antawaine began about a year ago and he has shown so much promise that he has performed with a group of professional musicians.  One of his prized possessions is his own guitar.  He is also learning to play the piano.  Antawaine appears to have musical talent as he quickly picks up what is being taught.  When not playing guitar or piano, Antawaine can be found playing video games, drawing, creating origami figures, or enjoying many types of physical activities.

"Football, basketball," Antawaine said.

Antawaine also loves action movies.  He is bright and enthusiastic about learning. A good sense of humor is another strength for Antawaine. 

Antawaine says he'll eat anything but sushi.

And for dessert, "chocolate ice cream," Antawaine said.

 

As for his three wishes, "get adopted, be able to see my sister and I don't have a third one," Antawaine said.

     

Antawaine has a younger sister who will not be part of this adoption, but contact with her is very important to him.  The family will seek out and participate in support services, if needed.  Antawaine would love to go to a concert, go camping and attend a football game with his family!  And it is very important to him to find a family to call his own.

"It's important to me because i haven't had a permanent family all my life because i've been in CPS all my life," Antawaine said.

Antawaine would like to have a mom and a dad.  The best family for him will be structured with consistent expectations and consequences.  The family will help Antawaine to reach his full potential and help improve his self-esteem.  Antawaine has experienced many losses in his life and his family will need to be patient with him and allow him to bond on his on timeframe.  But most importantly, a family to show Antawaine the Gift of Love! ls far out weigh mine.  This 13 year old is athletic, musically talented, and an intelligent youth.
