Three siblings show up at Por-trait In-novation in Tyler to pose for pictures together.
Marquice, Janice and Charlene have spent the majority of their life split up in foster care. Their Christmas wish is to be adopted together.
“Cause they’re my sisters and we’re supposed to be together,” said Marquice, the big brother.
Marquice keeps a close eye on his little sisters. He’s 13 years old.
“Being a teenager is awesome!” he said. “I do all sports except baseball and soccer. I’m going to try out for running back.”
Janice is 11 years old and the most outgoing of the group. “I like to swim. I like to play outside a lot,” she said.
This friendly young girl is always smiles and optimistic about her future.
The youngest is 10-year-old Charlene. She’s the most reserved of the three. She is enjoying the fifth grade. “(I like) reading, writing and science and math.”
Gipson said, “She’s real active. Loves to dance. Loves to sing. She wants to be a cheerleader and she’s ready to be adopted.”
They would do best in an active family, willing to keep them involved in church.
“They need a family that is going to be 100 percent committed to them” and committed to rejoining these siblings in a forever family.
