OKLAHOMA CITY - Three siblings are hoping to be reunited under one roof after being separated and put into different foster homes.

The kids are kind and courteous, and it is obvious they miss each other.

"This is going to be my happiest day ever,” Shakeva said.

Shakeva is 10 years old and full of personality, while 12-year-old Destiny is very thoughtful. Their big brother, Jeremy, is 15 years old and protective of his two younger sisters.

Along with making jokes, Jeremy is also a great student and would love a career in the arts.

"Animation is the first thing on my list. Then, after that, graphic designing and sound engineering,” Jeremy said.

Shakeva also has a dream career in mind.

"I either want to be a cheerleading coach or a cheerleader,” Shakeva said.

However, if that doesn't work out, she has also thought about being a DHS case worker.

Her older sister, Destiny, shares a similar interest.

"I want to be a foster mom. That way they know they're not the only one that's been through it,” Destiny said. "You're so depressed, because you don't get to see your mom, and I would tell them it's okay, because you're going to be in good hands."

The siblings have been under DHS custody for four years and, right now, they live in the same city but not together.

Jeremy is at a group home, and the girls live in separate foster homes.

They only see each other twice a month.

"Anytime I leave, I just can't. I don't want to leave." Destiny said.

They said they cherish the time they do get to spend together.

"Sometimes we go out to eat. Sometimes we go bowling. Last time we saw each other, we went bowling and laser tag. Of course, I won,” Jeremy said.

It's always a treat, and they'd like more time together

"To hang out, and so we can have a good family that will treat us nice and give us good food and good shoes and good clothes,” Shakeva said.

Simple requests from three siblings who want to once again share a place to call home.
