3 sisters hoping to find one forever home

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Three local sisters can only dream of waking up in the same house. They've been separated in foster care and are hoping there's one family out there willing to take in all three of them.

Just like they do in real life, these three sisters weathered the storm together in the hurricane simulator at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. Ten-year-old Leilani, eight-year-old Sincerely, and five-year-old Philosophy have been through a lot in their short lives and living in separate foster homes right now is making their hearts hurt even more.

Leilani is turning 11-years-old at the end of the month and the number one present on her wish list is something most girls her age likely take for granted.

“The best birthday wish would be to get an adoptive home for the three of us,” said Leilani.

“They want to be with an African American family. They want to be with family who will spend time with them, and love them, love them no matter what,” said protective services worker, Florence Keitel.

With no parents to look after all three of them, Leilani does her best to take care of her two younger sisters, when she sees them.

“I sleep over her house sometimes and she comes to my house almost every Sunday,” continued Leilani.

They can only dream of the day they can wake up in the same house, every day of the week.

Sincerely says family should live together.

Philosophy has an adorably huge personality.

Ok, let me tell you something. I wish me and my sisters lived together all of us,” she said.

And she was more than happy to tell us why she loves her two sisters.

“It's because both of them are cute like a cutie pie and, and I love them because they love me and I love them, but I love them more,” added Philosophy.

What these girls need is a family to give them unconditional love and a family that's willing to facilitate their relationship with their older brother and sister.

“They have two other older siblings and they're very bonded with those siblings as well,” explained Keitel.

They are happy sisters, who simply want to be part of one loving forever home.

“I wish, me and my sisters and all of my family lived together because we love each other,” Philosophy said.

If you are interested in adopting or becoming a foster family, please call 1-877-I-ADOPT-U.

CBS News 8 would like to thank the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center for hosting a fun day, and also photographer Evan Yamada for volunteering his time to take the Heart Gallery photos you saw in the video.
