A Place to Call Home: Kejuan

Determined. Positive. Kind. Those three words perfectly describe Kejuan.  In today's A Place to Call Home, Five on Your Side photojournalist Joe Eickmeier heads to the court for a little game of basketball.

15-year-old Kejuan will hit a major milestone in December when he turns 16! He has lived without parents for more than nine years. He's so ready for a family to cheer him on to reach his dream of going to Mizzou's Journalism School! He's determined and positive in spite of his circumstances. Kejuan has a unique little wish. He really wants to go see the Missouri/Illinois Bragging Rights game! If you would like more information about granting his little wish or becoming part of his life, please call the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition at 1-800-FOSTER3. A BIG Thank You to Coach Dennis Beckett from St. Louis Basketball Academy. Kejuan had a blast! For more information about open gyms, lessons and leagues, give Dennis a call at (314) 769-2255 or visit stlbball.com.
