Both girls also enjoy swimming, shopping, playing sports, listening to hip-hop and gospel music, and watching cartoons, preteen movies, and shows on the Disney channel. Arkisia is a helpful girl who likes to sing and is open to trying new things. At school, she enjoys spending time on the computer and participating in art and music. Arlisia is a loving and caring girl who likes to dance. At school, she enjoys reading, spending time with her friends, and participating in art and music. Arkisia and Arlisia 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 siblings who have been planned for separately.
