What You Can Do for Justis and Shekinna 

Justis and Shekinna will do best in a traditional two-parent home, or a single female in Illinois that will provide love, structure and consistency. Potential parents should be committed and patient through the bonding period. They will thrive in an active home where both Justis and Shekinna are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities and are able to play and explore new things.

An Illinois family is preferred.
