Ask Antwon how he came into foster care and his answer will shock you. Antwon returned to care for the second time after being adopted by an abusive parent. The story he tells about how he was treated sounds unbelievable — but every word is true. Eventually, it was Antwon who called 9-1-1 to rescue him from the abuse.

Antwon can be quiet when you first meet him, but he quickly warms up, especially if you talk about football. He's a very good student and loves to play video games. Antwon's needs are very simple and heartfelt: kindness and love from a family who will care about him forever.
