4ever Family

HARLINGEN, Texas (KVEO) — CBS 4 is committed to finding great homes for wonderful children looking for their 4Ever Family.

Meet Keyla and Cristina.

Keyla is 12-years-old. She does very well in school, as she is typically an A and B student. She has a creative side and loves working with art and crafts. Recently she learned to embroider!

Cristina is 11-year-old. She is very active and enjoys playing outside with her puppy “Lily”, and is very nurturing and responsible with her puppy.
