SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - The three siblings you're about to meet are currently in a loving foster home, but what they need now is a Forever Family. This terrific trio of kids who are ready to be part of a family bring an abundance of laughter and joy with them.
Two-year-old Vanessa, three-year-old Breanna and five-year old Adriann would be a perfect fit for parents looking to create an instant family. Though it might sound intimidating to take in three kids under five, these children have impeccable manners.
"They are very polite. They call everybody they meet with 'Miss'. They call me Miss France," protective services worker France Wang said.
They also get along incredibly well.
"I like hugging them," Adriann said of his sisters.
Adriann adores her sisters, and they feel the same way about him.
"They're really good with sharing with one another also. That's the one thing that stands out about them, sharing is pretty much second nature to all of them," Wang said.
The children are currently in a loving foster home, but it's time for them to find a Forever home.
"A home that would really commit to all three of them, a home that would nurture all of their individual strengths," Wang said.
Adriann just finished preschool and will be starting kindergarten in the fall.
"They love going to the library every week and reading. He (Adriann) likes to show you how fast he can run and he also likes to flex his muscles for you," Wang said. "Brianna is a very cheerful little girl, she's either smiling a lot or laughing. Vanessa is more of the quiet one of the three. She enjoys playing with her Legos and her blocks and she loves to sing."
Vanessa's doing a great job navigating with her foot in a cast after her sister accidentally landed on it. It's nothing that time and a kiss won't heal.
"They're just so easy to love," Wang said.
