Brittany & Fatima Sparkle In Hopes Of A Loving Family

Posted: Updated:

Brittany (2005) and older sister Fatima (2000) get sparkles in their eyes and smiles on their faces when they get to spend quality time together.  With all too few opportunities for the two of them to spend "pampering time" together and with getting spoiled at a nail salon being something neither of them had experienced before, we knew what to do … so off we went with Brittney and Fatima to "Get Spoiled" Nail Salon in Torrance, California.

At the salon there were many colors, designs and textures to choose from; but before these sisters embarked on making those selections, they enjoyed chatting about anything and everything – almost like adult "BFF"s who get together every once in a while to catch up on their lives. The unfortunate element of reality to this is that Fatima and Brittany are not currently placed together, so when they do see each other it is catch-up time for them.

Fatima is a warm and engaging girl who blossoms when showered with praise and encouragement.  Fatima enjoys engaging with peers but more than that, she says that she enjoys being a big sister to Brittany.

Brittany is a healthy and bubbly, "social butterfly".  She is very helpful around the house and loves attending school. But like her sister, she would like nothing more than for them to live with each other.

Both sisters desire to become part of a permanent and loving family that will adopt both of them together.  And like the many color, design and texture options at the nail salon, these sisters know that there are all kinds of different families out there.  The primary quality they are looking for in a family, though, is simple – one that will apply unconditional love to them as part of their family.
