TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Japiera and Jamya are a dynamic sister duo who love to play outside and just be girls. They hope together they will find a family to call their own. They hope to find an adoptive family that will actively embrace them both.

Japiera, 10, is sweet, loving and always on the go.

"[I love to] go swim, play games with other people, play on the computes, call my friends," said Japiera.

She also likes school and would like to be a singer when she grows up.

"My favorite subject is science and reading," she said.

Her favorite color is baby blue and she likes for her room to be neat and organized.

As for her three wishes, they are in line with most girls her age.

"[I want to] go to a concert, live in the mall and have a bunch of money," said Japiera.

When it comes to her forever family, she is hoping to find one that is just as active as she is.

"I would like an active family that goes on vacation and sometimes they are lazy," she said.

She is closely bonded with her sister, Jamya, who is six years old and loves to joke around and play outside.

"I like to play on the playground," she said. "I like to play Barbies...go to Chuck E. Cheese and go to the golf place and go fishing."

When it comes to travel, Jamya wants to head to Florida and visit some of her favorite friends at Disney World.

Finding Nemo is Jamya's favorite movie and she loves all kinds of animals, including zebras, anteaters, lions, flamingos and sharks.

Both girls need to continue counseling to deal with trust issues and problems with expressing emotions. Both girls need a home that provides structure, emotional support and positive attention.

They also hope to find a forever family that will give them hugs on a daily basis and show them the gift of love.
