We first met Rikki in May when we visited Heavenly Halo Horse ranch. Rikki has a soft spot in her heart for animals, especially horses.
"Because when you watch them run through a field, it's like they're free almost. And, I've always wanted to feel that way."
Rikki is 15 and will be in the 10th grade. She's very bright and has done so much better in school thanks to counseling.
She'd like to find a family that will go to church and just enjoy normal daily activities. That's something she's never had.
"My favorite thing I've wanted to learn about a family is that they can keep me safe and they love me, so."
The same goes for Danielle, who likes to be called Dani. She also hopes to find a permanent home. We first met her last January.
Dani turned ten in April and loves to read. She will easily steal your heart with her sweet and kind nature. Dani tries so hard to please. She gets help with her special needs and that has helped her performance at school.
"Really, really, really good. What kind of grades? A's, B's and S's."
Dani attends church, likes animals, and really hopes her future includes a mom and dad.
Both Rikki and Dani are outstanding children who truly deserve to have forever homes.
NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert hopes you'll call DHS Child Welfare to find out more about Rikki or Danielle. The number is 581-2195. They'll also be happy to tell you more about DHS adoption.
