"I am honored to share my appreciation for you to undergo such a demanding project. I am so proud of you. I only hope to have more people like you cross my path, who just want to do what is good for others, without expecting anything back. Your life journey has led you to this most pivotal and important point in time.......that you want to share with others especially the youth in foster care that you can make it, if only you believe that you can.
I will remember you as a special person who in just a short period of time, made contacts with others to help you develop and successfully implement your Art Adopts A Child Project. You have hung in there and stayed with it through to the end of the beginning..... You are what I deem as an phenomenal woman whose faith has kept you focused and determined to do your very best. You are a Winner!!! and Congratulations again for a job well done."

"Ms. Antieris Johnson is "thinking outside the box" with her approach to dealing with serious matters affecting children in foster care, through her "Art-Adopts-a-Child" project. Through this program, matters such as self-esteem, rejection, boundaries, loss, abuse and neglect and others can be therapeutically, yet caringly and creatively broached. Kudos to her and best wishes!"

"Affecting…Amending…Accomplished…Art Adopts a Child proves to be a life changing project. Children have conveyed their intimate stories and uncovered aspirations with this hands-on expression.
The words alone--- ART, adoption, and children all embrace a tender spot in Ms. Johnson’s heart. She has adopted many with her vision, and her vision is alive and well. A true creation created. Tieris, a passionate soul, continue to inspire the children, as you continue to inspire us all. I, with honor and the deepest consideration can only say again…Mission Accomplished"

“I really have enjoyed working with and supporting Antieris in her endeavors to be an outstanding advocate for youth, outreach, and the community as a whole. The “Art Adopts a Child” community action project is just the beginning of her story of successes. Assisting with fund-raising for and promotion of the project was a pleasure for me, simply because of the compassion and dedication that Antieris constantly displayed with every challenged that arouse. I wish her the best in all things, as she continues to build her portfolio.”
