Eli doesn’t need a lot of money, he says. “My wish would be that whenever I need to pay for something, I have that exact amount.”
This sentiment encapsulates the kind, calm nature of this teen, who is proud of the fact that “everything has turned out OK.”
Eli enjoys two activities – sports and video games. When it comes to sports, his favorites are basketball and football, and he prefers the Cleveland Cavaliers (“Kyrie Irving,” he says, “not LeBron James”) and the Atlanta Falcons.
He enjoys the outdoors, as well, especially walks with his friends. “They’re nice to talk to,” says Eli.
Someday, Elis hopes to study coding and become a video game developer.
His other great wish? To stay connected to his 10-year-old brother, always.
Eli was born in 2004
Tahj is a singer, but he doesn’t make a thing of it. “I’m calm about singing,” he says, with a twinkle in his eye.
This young man has big dreams, too, but they don’t involve his vocal talents. He’s on his local football team, and in the future, he’d like to play professionally as an NFL quarterback. Maybe even for his favorite team, the Seahawks.
Tahj is creative, too, drawing and choosing colorful shirts, and he especially loves making slime around the house.
Someday, Tahj would like to take a trip to California. The beach, nice houses, and Disneyland are all very appealing to him.
Short term, he is wishing for a phone with a pop socket. Ideally, he’d have some great headphones to connect to the phone, where he can play his favorite streaming stations, and further hone those singing skills.
Tahj was born in 2008.
