Gift of Love: 4 Siblings With Lots Of Love To Give

It's picture day at Oopsa Daisy Portraits in Tyler. Inside, 10 year old Isiah and his 6 year old sister Sha'Kayla pose for the camera.

They are awaiting the arrival of their two brothers whom they haven't seen in a year; separated by different foster homes, far apart.  "It's sad to not to be with your own brothers and sisters," says Isiah.

Then, the moment they had been waiting for. Sha'Kayla runs to her brothers with open arms. "I like to visit my brothers," she says with a soft, sweet voice.

Corderius says, "It is great we get to take a picture with each other and see each other. I miss seeing my other brother and sister every day."

These sibling were removed from their home about 3 years ago. "Their basic daily care was so neglectful that they had to be placed in foster care to insure their safety," says Laurie White, Child Protective Services caseworker.

Foster care has actually given these children back their security and stability. "They give us good food to eat and clothes to wear and they take us out to eat," says Joemorian.

Corderius is the leader of the group and the big brother. He's 11. "I like to go shopping. I like to go outside. I like to ride my bike. I like to play football, basketball and skate."

Next in line, Isiah. He likes attention. "I like it when girls look at me. A long time ago when girls started calling me handsome, that's when I started acting shy," he says with a sheepish grin.

Then, there's 7 year old Joemorian. I asked him, "Do you get in trouble at all?" He replies, "Not that much at school. I have a good day."

And rounding out the group is Sha'Kayla. She's the princess. "I love my brothers."

"These children need a lot of patience but they all have such wonderful personalities that these children are going to give a family a lot of love. They have a lot of love to give and with the right environment, I think they would do very well together," explains Laurie.

And staying together is their top priority. "We always play together and if someone gets mad, we say, 'what's wrong' and then we make them happy," says Isiah.

Corderius says, "Then we won't have to drive a long way to see each other."

And Joemorian says, "I want a forever family."

A forever family where they can grow up together and never be separated again.
