(WHNT) - Ciara is 8 years old and in the 3rd grade. Spelling, reading and math keep her busy.
"Multiplication, adding, subtraction," she says.
Her favorite class is PE, though. She loves to run, play basketball and football.
We met with her at the McWane Center in Birmingham recently, and she loved all the exhibits.
Ciara is the baby of the bunch. Her oldest sister Cha'keria is 14. Another sister, Alex, is 11.
The girls are together now, and it's important for them to stay together. We asked why she fears the possibility of splitting up.
"Because if I have any problems they won't be there for me," Ciara said.
Sisters always protect each other, and without a mom and dad, that's their only protection.
