Today's Wednesday's Child is praying for a Christmas Miracle. They are a brother and sister who are so bonded together, they told News 8's Cynthia Izaguirre they refuse to be adopted without one another.


It's easy to dream when you walk into the Hickman's home in Dallas.

Elijah, 12, and Yricole, 10, were instantly overcome with the spirit of Christmas.

When Izaguirre asked if Yricole was excited about Christmas, she responded, "Yep, cause it's Jesus' birthday. Christmas is really not about us."

Elijah and Yricole are the youngest of five children.

Due to the needs of the older siblings, Elijah and Yricole need to be adopted separately from their other siblings. They are very bonded to each other.

Elijah expressed it perfectly.

"She means love to me, my sister," he said.

Yricole feels the same way.

"He's a good brother cause he's nice and he agrees with me on a lot of things," she said.

Elijah is full of joy and does not waste a moment of daylight. He is very active and just about lost his mind with the train set.

"I saw the trains and I got to pull the whistle," he said. "It was exciting and I got to see lots of toys and we got to get candy too."

Yricole is very bright and enjoys playing with dolls and action figures. She could name them all during her tour of the Hickman's Winter Wonderland.

But, her most favorite thing to do?

"Read," she said. "I like reading. My favorite author is Geranomo Stiltan because his books are funny and cool."

Both she and her brother are very loving, respectful and are working to make improvements in their lives.

Even though Yricole has a fear of dogs and large animals, she's worked hard to overcome them.

"I like little puppies," she said. "They're so cute."

Both of the children are bright, big hearted and deeply desire a forever family.

"I promised myself when I get adopted, I'm going to love and not be hateful."

Now all Elijah and Yricole need is a Christmas miracle to find a loving home.
