Tampa, Florida - It's summer break for most children here in the Tampa Bay area. It's a time for kids to head to the beach or their grandma and grandpa's home for a visit.  

While it's hard to even imagine, but there are 19,000 kids in Florida's foster care system. Many of those children are waiting and hoping for a forever family to do things with, to love them, to have fun with them, no matter what the plans are. They're just looking for someone to call Mommy and Daddy. 

That's the case for Antonio, Ashanti and Robert. While Antonio and Robert are currently living together in foster care they miss their sister Ashanti who lives somewhere else. 

These children have been in state care since 2004 and Robert has been in the system since he was an infant. The siblings are hoping for a forever family to spend quality time with them and they would love to be able to stay together to learn, play and grow.
