It was the summer of '09 when NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert first introduced us to Aujinee, and twins, Candace and Jamell. The twins were getting ready for the first grade, and Aujinee was going into the third grade.
These siblings are very affectionate.. and have great personalities. They'll keep you entertained. Aujinee loves to dance.
"I do, when I grow up, I want to be a ballerina, a superstar ballerina."
Unfortunately, the kids have not yet been adopted, but we hope that a very creative idea will help them find a mom and dad.
Aujinee, Candice and Jamell are now featured on a billboard that promotes the Tulsa Zoo. A NewsChannel 8 viewer actually bought the rights to this billboard at a fundraiser for the Tulsa Zoo. It's located on the east side of Highway 169 between 51st and 61st streets.
The viewer could choose any child she wanted for the billboard, but she wanted to feature a Waiting Child. It was decided Aujinee, Candice and Jamell were the perfect children!
So, just a couple of months ago, the kids spent the morning at the Zoo for their billboard photo session. They had a blast.. they get along so well together... and love animals. While they may be a bit older now, their hope hasn't changed. They want to be adopted, together.
So, now that you know these kids are still waiting, DHS would love to hear from you. One home for 3 terrific kids... wouldn't that be a billboard to remember!
