TYLER, TX (KLTV) - It was an afternoon of paints and creation at bless your art for 12-year-old Dylan and his sisters, 10-year-old Daisy and 6-year-old Misty. All three are looking for a family together that they can call their own. Dylan is a sweet child who tends to be reserved and quiet and like most boys his age, sometimes acts out. He likes to focus that extra energy on sports.

"I like playing basketball, football and, I haven't played baseball yet, but I'd like to play that," said Dylan.

He also enjoys going to church and school. Dylan says he likes math "because all you have to do is count numbers." His least favorite subject is spelling. Dylan says he'll eat just about anything, but olives and mushrooms.

He wants to be a racecar driver when he grows up. While Dylan's sister Daisy doesn't really like school, she tells me she's super excited to be in the band.

"We're just learning our first notes," said Daisy. "We don't have our books or anything and I'm not sure but I think if you're the only one playing don't you stay first chair? 'Cause I'm the only baritone."

And she says she may even play in college and get a degree in music. Daisy moves constantly and doesn't usually focus on one activity for very long. Like her brother, Daisy likes sports too!

"We like to do soccer a lot, mainly soccer," said the 10-year-old.

Daisy needs structure, consistence and stability in her foster home. Like other girls her age, she lacks confidence and has low self-esteem and will need parents to lift her up. As for little 6-year-old Misty, she loves art.

"I like to paint, and I know what I can be when I grow up," said Misty. "An artist!"

Misty also loves watching The Little Mermaid and animals.

"My favorite kind is a horse and a dog and cat...and a bunny," said Misty.

She is especially looking forward to her birthday when she hopes to get a chocolate cake! All three say they'd like to go to Disney World some day, but, first, they'd like to find a family that will show them the gift of love.
