GIFT OF LOVE

Gift Of Love: Four Siblings

They are friendly, loving and teachers rave about them. The resilient group of siblings has been in foster care since 2005. Although they will require a lot of time, the rewards could be big.

Here's their story in KLTV 7's Gift of Love report.


Jumpin' Jacks Party Shack was really jumpin' when this sibling group of 4 payed a visit, ranging in age from 3 to 14.

"They're all just sweet kids."

And kids, who deserve a second chance.

Because of drug use in their home, the children were removed and placed in foster care about 3 years ago.

"The kids have different ages but they've always been together and they've had each other and when there's been hard times so it would be hard for them to cope separately," said April Keith, their CPS caseworkers.

To avoid another lose in their lives, they hoping to stay together in.

"Jammie is smart and knows that her mom wasn't able to take care of them," said Keith. 

Jammie is the oldest and tends to parent her younger siblings.

"I like to go on nature walks. I like animals. When I get older, I want to go to college and be a veterinarian," she told me. "My favorite subject is science."

But make no mistake, she's a typical teenager.

"She likes music. She likes boys. She likes to talk on the phone," said Keith.

She keeps a close eye on her twin 7 year old brothers, Jarrett and Joshua.

"They very much have their own personalities for twins which is neat," said Keither, "but they sure need each other though. They go hand in hand."

Joshua likes cars.

"I'm going to be in the 2nd grade."

Jarrett likes Spiderman and going to camp.

"We went canoing, we went fishing."

The youngest of the bunch is this little guy, Jordan.

"He is typical 3 year old needs of wanting to do things independently and he is like rough and tough ."

These siblings need a patient family that can give them lots of time and attention, but most importantly can give them the gift of love.
