Children are a Gift: Damian, Catrina and Cynthia

Children are a Gift: Damian, Catrina and Cynthia

(KYTX) – Taking a tour of Brookshire's Wonderful Wildlife Museum in Tyler, these siblings stick close together.

"They take care of each other," said Brandi Jaco with Child Protective Services. And they help and support each other while waiting for a forever family."Each have actually excelled since they have been in foster care. Their behaviors have de-escalated and they've actually gotten better since coming into care."

The oldest is big brother Damian. He's a happy boy who seeks any kind of attention. "I like to play outside and I want to be a baseball player or a cop," he said.

He also likes riding his bike, video games and the 4th-grade. He adds, "You get to do cool stuff like math and reading in school."

Jaco explained, "He's very protective over his little sisters and he really does get upset when he doesn't think he's going to be able to protect them. What he really wants, is just to have a safe place with his siblings."

Catrina is a very outgoing 7-year-old. "I'm loosing two of my teeth?" shes says showing the space in the front of her mouth.

"She is the jokester. She likes to make everybody laugh and typically is smiley and happy," said Jaco.

Catrina is also talkative and inquisitive. "I play at the park and play at the zoo. My favorite animal is the elephant."

The youngest is 5-year-old Cynthia, who always has a pony tail or bow in her hair. She needs a little help with her speech, but is doing well in kindergarten. She is active, but mostly likes to do whatever her big brother and sister are doing.

"Cause I love em'," she said with a sweet little voice.

These siblings play together well and are ready to be adopted together. "These are sweet, fun babies. They are great kids."
