Children are a Gift: Kenya and Maira

Two bonded and beautiful sisters are looking to be adopted together.  They are eager to see what the next chapter of their life holds.

They are beautiful both inside and out, and these two sisters are hoping this report will lead to their Forever Family. In this edition of CBS 19’s Children are a Gift Kenya and Maira are treated to a special day of pampering.

It's not every day you get the royal treatment. For these salon sisters, it's a moment they'll always cherish.

“Today we got our nails done and our hair," said Kenya.

11-year-old Kenya and 10-year-old Maira are both soft-spoken but with smiles as bright as the sun.

Kenya proudly showed us her new hairdo, while telling us about one of her favorite times of the year, holidays.

“That's when the whole family can come and celebrate with us and eat together as a family," she marveled thinking about Christmas time.

Kenya wants a forever family both she and her sister, Maira, can join together.

They are inseparable and quite competitive especially with a game of ball they frequently play. Maira was quick to say she “beats her big sister all the time!”

Maira is easy-going and thoughtful. Kenya's birthday is coming up and she wanted to make sure we knew.

"I’m going to tell her happy birthday and give her a present," Maira shared.

As Kenya fast approaches 12 years old, she already sees a young lady when she looks in the mirror. She's old enough to understand what adoption means.

“Adoption means to find a family you're comfortable with," she said.

Sharing moments like they did at BB 63 Salon in Fort Worth and relying on each other for strength is how Kenya and Maira continue to overcome incredible odds.

Now all they need is a Forever Family who will open their home and hearts to both of them.
