“I want a parent that says that we’re their own,” Siblings ready to be reunited with new family

OKLAHOMA CITY - They've lived apart for more than a year, but three siblings are ready to live under one roof.

12-year-old Andre, 11-year-old Keyonna and 13-year-old Andrew are all active kids who love extracurricular activities.

"Basketball, football, stuff like that," Andrew said.

"I like cheerleading, basketball, baseball, and softball - girly stuff,” Keyonna said.

"Basketball and football, ride horses," said Andre, who either wants to be a cowboy or a football player when he grows up.

Keyonna dreams of being a hair stylist, while Andrew wants to be a general in the Army.

Andrew likes to be in command, especially when it comes to looking after his brother and sister.

"To make sure they don't get hurt or bullied," he said.

Right now, that's difficult to do since they are in different homes.

They can't remember exactly how long it has been since they were separated, but they do remember the little things they enjoyed doing together.

"Ride bikes together - that's one thing we loved to do together," Keyonna said.

They also have their own ideas of what a permanent family can give them.

"I want a stable environment to live in, and I want to make friends and not have to keep losing friends and a good mom and dad to take care of me," Andre said.

"Because, I've been moving all my life. I need a stable place," Andrew said.

"I don't want a regular foster parent. I want a parent that says that we're their own,” Keyonna said, hoping to land with a family to call mom and dad.
