A Child Who Hopes: Damien, Dominic and Destiny

DUNCAN, Okla._When it comes to adoption, many families can imagine opening up their homes to one child, maybe two. But what about three?

The three siblings only get to see each other once a month, because the boys live in a different foster home than their sister. While they cherish those visits, they dream of one day living together under the same roof.

Damien, 13, Dominic, 12, and Destiny, 10, share a bond that's undeniable.

Damien, the quintessential big brother, always keeps an eye out for his younger siblings. He's a talkative teen with a great sense of humor, who would really like a family that would allow him to play football and nurture his love for engineering.

"Build homes on the computer, you do cool stuff on the computer and you build stuff," Damien said when he was asked about his love for engineering.

He also enjoys playing video games with his younger brother, Dominic, who has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. Dominic has high hopes for the future and wants to be a police officer when he grows up.

Dominic loves to laugh and is good at telling jokes and making funny faces. That's one of the things his little sister, Destiny, likes the most.

"He's funny and he never gives up on me," said Destiny.

The boys say Destiny always picks them up when they're feeling down. It's clear to see that Destiny loves and looks up to her big brothers, but she also has a passion for animals and art.

"I have a list of animal friends in my pocket," said Destiny.

While Destiny and Dominic were very open about what they like to do, they had little to say about the kind family they want. Instead, they let big brother do all the talking.

"A dad and a mom that will take care of me and love me," said Damien.

The children desperately want to live together, but case workers say if they can't find a home for all three, they'll be up for adoption separately. The children hope their future family is watching and will keep them from being split up.
