Three siblings in urgent need of finding a forever home

Posted: Updated:

There is an urgent need for a family to step forward and take in three children who have no place to call home. The siblings are four, five and six-years-old and the tumultuous changes in their young lives are starting to take a toll on them. They're yearning for parents to give them stability, security and love.

News 8 was at the park to play during the shooting of this Adopt 8, but six-year-old Zandre wasn't so sure about the whole thing and it was heartbreaking to watch him back away - apprehensive about why we were approaching him, which is understandable when you learn about the trauma he's been through and that he and his two siblings just had to be placed in an emergency children's shelter.

"They were getting checked in and there's lot of chaos going on, and it's just hard when they're not in a home," said protective services worker Nicole Espinosa. "They've moved so many times that they meet somebody new and think, is this somebody that's going to take me somewhere?"

So we left Zandre alone for a little bit, and though their lives have been spinning out of control lately,

His little sister, Ty'Anna who perhaps doesn't fully understand what's going on, just wanted to play.

Ty'Yanna is in preschool and is the youngest of the three and has no complaints about having two older brothers.

Freddie got a big kick out of photojournalist Ann Marie Spaulding's big camera lens.

Meantime, Zandre, was getting used to us being around and once he let his guard down his personality came shining through. Zandre was eager to show off his gymnastic moves, and his energy really exploded when we started to play ball.

And just as the News 8 playdate was starting to end, Zandre walked up asked if Marcella Lee would like to play. And so she used this opportunity to get to know him. Zandre is in the second grade and like to learn about dinosaurs.

And then Marcella asked if he misses living with his siblings, but wasn't prepared for his answer.

"I live with them in a college."

"It's sad that they think they're at college where they're at right now and where they're really at is at a temporary emergency shelter. And they just need a home. They need a family to provide them that stability. They're little. They're not supposed to be in college. They're supposed to be in a home," explained Espinosa.

If you are interested in adopting from foster care, or becoming a foster family, call 1-877-I-ADOPT-U to learn more about getting started or go to their website to take that first step and fill out an adoption inquiry form.
