We met Amanda (Mandy), Virginia (Ginny), and Eddie at North Bend State Park. As soon as we sat down there wasn't a dull moment with this joyful trio.

When I asked them if they play together Ginny said "kind of." Then Ginny laughed and said "yes we play together."

Mandy was just getting over being sick when we met her but that didn't stop this bright eyed seven-year-old from delving into activities.

"I like to play," she said.

Mandy loves to play checkers, play with dolls and watch Hannah Montana. Now the ood that makes this brown-eyed girl smile even more is "chicken nuggets" she said.

Mandy's in kindergarten and has some learning disabilites.

Together these three siblings live in the same foster home and help take care of one another.

"I like to hug my mom and kiss her every night," said Ginny.
Now meet Mandy's six-year-old sister, Ginny.

"I like to work," Ginny said when I asked her about what she likes to do at school. She is an inquisitive girly girl who enjoys almost every second of kindergarten.

"I like to color, build blocks, and play with animals," Ginny said.

Their three-year-old brother Eddie enjoys playing with play dough and coloring but what really caught his attention when I met him was the microphone.

Eddie receives speech therapy for a speech delay and his social worker says he's making excellent progress but now all three need a loving and caring forever family to call their own.

"I'm done. Bye!" said Ginny.
