Wednesday's Child- Mary, Stephanie and Belinda

Posted: Updated:

We have featured the children on this week's Wednesday's Child several times over the last 3 years. They are still waiting to be adopted together. For 9 year old Mary, 10 year old Stephanie, and 15 year old Belinda it is like skating on thin ice watching time go by as they hope for a forever family.

Belinda is not the oldest member of this sibling group. 18 year old Caroline was not able to participate in our taping at Funtime Skating in Clinton. Belinda watches over her two younger sisters, Mary and Stephanie.

"Tell me some things you like to do..go shopping. Do you like to go shopping? What do you like to buy? Clothes and shoes", said Belinda.

"I like to sing, I like to listen to music, and I like to play", Stephanie said.

"Running and making designs. What kinds of designs? Like dresses and stuff", said Mary.

Belinda enjoys drawing, shopping, telling jokes and playing basketball. Stephanie is often referred to as the diva in the family. She will pout if she doesn't get her way and can be emotional as we found out.

Mary is the calming force for her sisters. She is always quick to smile and offer help to her sisters.

"Well they're both nice and when like when I can't solve something, like Stephanie tries to help me and my other sisters do that too", said Mary.

"Every time something happens to me she is always supportive of me and always worrying about me when I get hurt", Stephanie said.

"Nice and cute. They're sweet and they're cute and it's important to take care of them right? Belinda nods yes."

Belinda says she wants a family who will be kind to her and does not fight. Stephanie and Mary are in the same foster home, and they are very attached to their foster mother.

"You give me a place to stay and I won't have to be moved from place to place", Stephanie said.

We will learn more about Belinda, Stephanie and Mary in the next few weeks. For more information on adoption through the Department of Human Services, call the Mississippi Adoption Resource Exchange at 1-800-821-9157.
