When these young ladies grow up- Latasha wants to become a veterinarian and Briona "Bri" would like to be an auto mechanic but now they need a mother and father's love and support to help them reach their dreams.

These sisters are there for each other every step of the way.

"We even agree sometimes on the same things," said Bri.

Both Bri and Latasha live in foster care and lean on each other on and off the skating rink.

"We even did our nails together and toenails,"

Bri, who is 11 years old, and Latasha, who is 10 years old, dressed alike for the interview but like most sisters would - in opposite colors

I asked them "Would you say you are girly girls?"
Latasha said "yes" and Briona said "no."

Latasha is in fourth grade and she really enjoys math.
"Well we get to play on a white board and do these number things you have to do," she said.

Bri is in fifth grade and she prefers science.

"Well you get to do crazy stuff like blow up stuff and touch stuff and you get to observe it with your ears and eyes without touching it and I thought that was the cool part," Bri said.

But there is one thing these girls both agree on -they want to be part of a forever family.

Bri said "We just want a family who has pets, if not I don't care, anything really. A place, I don't care."

Parents to do activities with like going out to eat, roller skating, and sports games.

"Just have fun, and go places. Go to football games like we do," she said.

A mom and dad to be there to support them and to push them in the right direction.
