Wednesday's Child - Lashundra

FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

When we think of twins we believe they are inseparable, do most things together and share many of the same habits. Now imagine the fear of being separated from your twin.

That is how 8 year old Lashundra feels.

She hopes to find a forever family not only for her twin but for the rest of her siblings too, on this week's Wednesday's Child.

Lashundra is always smiling.

She is not dramatic but knows how to handle the drama of her twin Breshundra.

"I like to go outside and ride my bike. Do you ride fast?  Nods yes.

Not too fast right? Nods no.

Do you put your helmet on? "I don't got no helmet," Lashundra said.

She is filled with energy and works hard to keep everyone happy with her sense of humor.

"Other than riding your bicycle what else do you like to do? Cook.

 What do you know how to cook? Spaghetti.

Spaghetti, is it good? Yes", Lashundra said.

Lashundra is helpful, making sure her twin, answers each question correctly.

"Be together. What? Be together. Be together. To be together".

She is assertive.

"I want to be a teacher and a judge. A teacher and a judge. She watches the judges' shows on TV. Do you like watching the judges' shows? Nods yes. Let me see you hit the gavel."

She is also loving and protective of all her siblings.

"I don't want to be adopted."

Why don't you want to be adopted? Please. Okay. You do want to be adopted with all of you together right? What kind of parents would you like? Kind, nice and.. Who like to do things with you? Help me do my homework", Lashundra said.

Now that her brother and sisters have helped her make up her mind about adoption, Lashundra says she is hopeful there is a family out there who will give them a permanent home.

To learn more about adoption through the Department of Human Services, you can call the Mississippi Adoption Resource Exchange at 1-800-821-9157.
