Wednesday's Child - Ravon and Tywain

Posted: Updated:
FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

She enjoys math, he is a baseball fan.

They live in separate foster homes but they remain close and hope for the day when they will be together under the same roof with a forever family.

We meet, 14 year old Ravon and 13 year old Tywain on this week's Wednesday's Child.

Ravon is about to celebrate her 15th birthday.

Her brother Tywain is the typical little brother, teasing her, competing with her at bowling and finding ways to keep her laughing.

"I'm a lovable person, I like helping people. I love math," Ravon said.

"I like to run, sing, play baseball, I like going to bible study, and I like science," Tywain said.

Tywain is outgoing and friendly. He likes being active and participating in outdoor activities.

Ravon is very intelligent, well mannered and lovable.

She is in 9th grade and has A's in all subjects.

"Have you thought about what you want to be when you grow up or what you want to do? A lawyer. How did you decide on law? Cause I like proving my point, like if something is not right I like going into detail and proving you know," Ravon said.

"Be a scientist. What would you like to study? I'd like to study the rotation of the earth," Tywain said.

Social workers say the children would do well in either a two parent or single parent home that provides structure, patience, guidance and support.

"It's kind of hard because we can't see each other, we just talk on the phone, it makes you sad," Tywain said.

"I just want to settle down in a home, instead of going from place to place," Ravon said.

Ravon is hoping this is the last birthday she will spend without her brother and without a permanent place to call home.
