September Wednesday's Child

Starting off at 15 years old, the oldest sibling, Jessica!
Next in line, it's the middle child at 13 years old, Marissa!
And last, but certainly not least, the youngest, age 11, Mark!

We took these three siblings to Emerson Lanes for a day of food, fun, and bowling!

"B-O-W-L-I-N-G," spells Mark. His favorite subject in school, "spelling cuz I always get A's."

When Mark grows up, he says he wants to be a cop. "They're special. They help people."

While Mark is set on protecting and saving the world, Marissa wants to be a teacher when she grows up.

"I think teachers are cool," Marissa says.

And Jessica knows what she wants to be. "A foster mom to watch out for kids cuz I love them and I want to be able to give them a home and be there for little kids that don't have any homes."

While they each have their own goals, right now they're pretty focused on winning a game of bowling.

First up we have Mark. He's got his game face on and pretty good form as he makes his way down the bowling lane. He'll aim nicely, and that's nine pins!

But Marissa will not let her little brother show her up, she comes up to the lane and scores another 9 for team sibling!

Last, Jessica will take it down the lane.., this one's too hot to handle, but she won't let that get her down. She reaches back, and a great play by big sister Jessica!

Team sibling will go in for the win!

And winning a forever family is something else these three hope to accomplish, together.

Mark says, "Id like for us to have a family so we can have a real mom and dad."

Jessisa adds, "they're all I got left, and if I get split up from them I won't have anything left."

Marissa says, "cuz I love them."

"I'll miss them if I don't live with them," Mark says.

Special thanks to Jim Wharton for that great play by play
