Wednesday's Children Kentrayvious, Alvin and Allissa

Kentrayvious, Alvin and Allissa are close African American siblings who get along well with other kids and love to learn new things, meet new people and watch cartoons. Kentrayvious, born in 2008, is a smart and helpful boy who loves to play video games and hang out with his friends. He also enjoys playing with his phone and tablet, playing football and basketball, and watching action movies and sports. The Atlanta Falcons are his favorite team. At school, where Kentrayvious earns good grades and is well-behaved, his favorite subject is math. Alvin, born in 2014, is a smart and friendly boy who loves to play with blocks and LEGOs with his siblings. He also enjoys playing in the sun, building things, watching Disney movies, and playing and watching football. Like his brother, Alvin’s favorite team is the Falcons and his favorite subject at school is math. Allissa, born in 2015, is a smart, compassionate and well-behaved girl who enjoys reading, cheerleading, getting her nails painted, playing with Barbie dolls, shopping, and riding bikes with her brothers. Kentrayvious, Alvin and Allissa need a loving adoptive family who will provide them with the attention, support, encouragement, structure and nurturing environment they need to continue to thrive. Their family will also need to support their desire to maintain their relationships with their older brother who has been planned for separately.
