NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert took our waiting children, Lalita and Jaquea to Box Portrait Gallery in Sapulpa, where Gary and Pamela Box gave these sisters a lasting way to remember this Christmas. They so enjoyed their professional photo session and were excellent models. They are very pretty and followed their instructions to a tea.
Jaquea is 14, in the 8th grade... and absolutely loves school.
"Like when I'm bored, I'll start to read, or if I want to do something, I'll do math or draw. I like to draw a lot. I can draw really good."
Lalita is 12 and is in the 7th grade. She has a beautiful smile... loves to sing in the choir at school.. and loves to dance.
"I want to be a dancer. Really? How come? Because I can dance. What kind of dancing? Rap dancing like break dancing."
Both girls have a lot of talent and a kind spirit. They enjoy going to church and like to hang out with their friends. And, these sisters are extremely close.
"I love her a lot."
It's very important that they be adopted together. DHS is hoping to find a single or two parent home, where Lalita and Jaquea can enjoy the love, support and guidance to help them reach their full potential. They're wonderful kids who need a new beginning so that next year, they will be "home for Christmas."
Please call DHS Child Welfare to find out more about Lalita and Jaquea. The number is 581-2033.
