Urgent need to find a forever home for three siblings

Posted: Updated:

There is an urgent need to find a forever family for three siblings, who thought they had found a permanent home. Sadly, they had to be removed from that home, through no fault of their own.

But because of a generous act, the kids did not have to spend the holidays in an emergency shelter, as they continue to wait for a new home.

We first introduced you to this trio of siblings in the summer of 2011. They were so polite and had only nice things to say about each other.

Eight-year-old Dolce, seven-year-old Jose and five-year-old Beatriz had not been enrolled in school until they entered the foster care system, shortly before we met them.

Now, two and a half years later it's their school community that has become their lifeline.

Dolce, Jose and Beatriz thought they had found their forever family, but in November had to be removed from the home due to turmoil in the family that had nothing to do with the kids.

When school administrators learned these children would have to be moved to an emergency shelter, the vice principal knew in her heart she couldn't let that happen.

"Their vice principal of the school and husband stepped up and are, sorry I'm getting choked up," said protective services worker Nicole Espinosa who noted that her tears are tears of thanks for such a gracious gift.

"To take a child into your own, a family member is very hard, let alone somebody you're not related to at all and around the holidays when it's crazy," continued Espinosa. "So it's just a selfless, loving act and shows you how many wonderful people we have in this community that are going to wrap around our kids."

It's also a testament to these three kids and the joy they bring to those whose know them and though their lives are filled with laughter, there is also heartache because they don't have a family. And they wait, once again, for a forever home.

They've been through a lot, but have always had each other.

Beatriz is eight, Dolce is almost 11, and Jose just turned 10 on Christmas Day and they're hoping the best present of all, a forever family, is on its way.

"These kids are amazing and any family would be lucky to get them into their home permanently," explained Espinosa.

    It's difficult to imagine growing up in a different home than your sibling, but that's the heartbreaking reality for many foster kids in San Diego.
