Lilianna, 10, and Asa, 8, are an amazing sibling group hoping to be adopted together. Lilianna, who goes by Lilly, is the older sister and very outgoing. She is described as active, fearless, and strong-willed. Lilly also has a side she describes as “classy,” and enjoys getting her nails done and putting on makeup. She attends karate class and really enjoys it. Lilly also loves art, enjoys watching cartoons, and helping her foster mother in the kitchen. In school, she performs at grade level and would benefit from support and consistent structure to stay on task. Lilianna is severely allergic to cats and dogs. Families with cats will not be considered, but her social worker would consider a family with a hypoallergenic dog.

Asa, the younger brother, has an introverted personality. He also likes to attend karate class. Asa likes indoor activities like mind-stimulating games that include problem-solving, drawing, and playing with cars. He also loves outdoor activities such as going to the park. In school, Asa performs above average compared to his peers.


Lilly and Asa will bring joy to a home that can provide them with structure, consistency, and freedom to express their emotions. They will do well in a loving two-parent family of any constellation, where they can be the only or youngest children in the home. Asa is biracial, and interested families must be dedicated to providing appropriate information and ethnic and cultural role models regarding his culture which includes discussing racism and discrimination.
