Sisters Mary, left, and Treasure are looking for their forever home.

Treasure, 12, describes herself as a "lovable, funny and energetic" young lady who likes to keep up on pop culture and what's cool. She enjoys dancing, singing, listening to music and reading. Though she may come across as reserved at first, she connects well with adults once she is able to trust them. Treasure is very gifted in her dancing abilities and likes to perform routines she has learned as well as creating her own. When she grows up, Treasure would like to be a track athlete or a police officer. The qualities that are important to her in a family are "happiness, honesty and fun."

Mary, 11, describes herself as a "nice, dorky, and energetic" girl who likes to draw, watch family movies and participate in all sorts of activities. Mary is very sweet, empathetic, likes to please and always sees the good in others. She is an active social butterfly and is a creative soul who loves to draw, make crafts and sing and dance in school plays. She has grown to love science and learning about animals, as well — she is a fantastic student. The qualities that are important to her in a family are "happiness and forgiveness."

Treasure and Mary are very close, and always put each other first. They need a family that will keep their sibling bond strong and love them for who they are.
