April, Sergio and Emily waiting for a permanent home

Posted: Updated:

Three siblings, ages two, four and six, would add an abundance of energy and joy to an adoptive family. These kids have a few simple requests: parents, pets and a pool.

They are quite a group: four-year-old Emily is the singer of the trio, with six-year-old brother Sergio playing the drums and eight-year-old sister April on guitar. For these three siblings, who truly know the meaning of harmony, taking turns is second nature. Teamwork, is the name of the game for these kids.

And when it comes to little sister Emily, April is extra careful. When asked why she was turning Emily so slowly, her answer was precious.

"Because I don't want my little sister to fall down because if she does, I get scared," April said.

"April is the mother of all of them," said Josie Cannon with Protective Services Worker. "She just watches over them, watches over them like a mom."

And as sweet as that is, what April deserves is a mom of her own.

"She definitely wants a mommy, because she just told me mommies take time with you and mommies spend a lot of time with you. So she's definitely looking for a mother figure," explained Cannon.

They need parents who can look out for all three of them.

"They tell me, a mom, a dad, a home with a pool, and a pet," continued Cannon.

The kids love the water and if you don't happen to have a pool, they said they could get a membership to a pool or drive to the beach.

After spending about a year apart, the three siblings couldn't be happier to be living in the same foster home right now. They play together well and are well adjusted.

"I like to play soccer, and I was on the soccer team once," said Sergio. "And I also like playing catch with a football."

And while Sergio is more serious than his sisters, his sisters bring out the fun in him.

"They touch his head and play with his ears, because he's the only boy," said Cannon. "So they have a lot of fun with Sergio. He just takes it."

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 form.

News 8 would also like to thank local photographer Malia Dadez for volunteering her time to take the Heart Gallery photograph seen in this story.
