Children Are A Gift: Carzell, Swaylon, and Tamya

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - These siblings are filled with excitement, getting the opportunity to spend the afternoon together. They miss each other right now after being split up in different foster homes. Their little faces light up when they see each other.

"'Cause I just love them. I just love them all the time," said Carzell, the oldest of the three siblings.

Carzell is 8 years old and in the fourth grade.

"We do math and all that," he said. "We do a lot of things. I like school."

He's is a loving, caring and outspoken young boy who is very protective of his younger siblings. He immediately gave them a big hug when he saw them.

"He is definitely the big brother of the group," said Rhonda Sabri, with Child Protective Services. "Whenever I pick them up he always asks, ‘Am I going to see Tamya and Swaylon?'"

Swaylon is also loving and always on the go. He enjoys watching cartoons and playing outside.

"He's a little reserved at first when he meets somebody, but a typical 3-year-old," Sabri said.

Tamya is the baby of the group and loves attention. She's described as a happy child with a sweet personality. The first thing she showed me was her brightly colored pink fingernails.

"She's definitely the girl of the bunch," Sabri said. "She likes to have her hair fixed and look pretty and loves her brothers' attention."

These children have been bounced between many different foster homes in a short period of time and are ready to settle down together.

"It's hard on them to get adjusted, going from one home to the other," Sabri said. "It's very important to them to know that they are safe and if they're going to have that forever family and be included. They're a good group of kids. They are very special."
