Wednesday's Child - Elease

This week on Wednesday's Child we pick up with the remaining members of our sibling group of six. We learn more about Elease, who says the most important quality she's looking for is parents who are responsible.

"My name is Elease and I'm 10 years old and I'm fourth grade."

Elease has no problems saying what is on her mind. She says she has to be confident with five siblings.

"I'm smart, intelligent and nice."

Elease says she is a baseball fan who likes to bat.

"Do you play baseball? Well no, but I play with my brothers."

All three girls say they want to be nurses.

"Your sister wanted to be a nurse too. Why do you want to be a nurse? Because I want to help people, sick people."

Elease enjoys school, her favorite subject?

"Language Arts. Why do you like Language Arts. I liked it ever since I was in first, second, since I started school."

The children live in separate foster homes.

"I feel sad and I pray."

Elease says the best times are when they are together.

"I feel good, I like playing with them. Do you guys do lots of things together? Yes mam. Like what? We play together..You play baseball. Yes, we talk together when we're lonely."

Elease is hopeful of finding a forever family who will take all of them.

"Nice, responsible and can take care of us."
