A Place to Call Home: Zach, Jaden, Xena, and Ashton

We continue our partnership with the Department of Human Services, profiling some of the hundreds of children in state foster care, up for adoption.

This week, we introduce you to three brothers and a sister, desperate for a place to call home.

13-year old Zach is not your typical teenager, not a typical 7th grader, and not at all typical in the way he handles his siblings, 8-year old Jaden, 5-year old Xena, and 2-year old Ashton.

Spend a few hours with Zach, even at the Little Rock Zoo, and it's easy to see he is more like a protective parent, a caregiver to his broken family.

Zach and his siblings live in separate foster homes, but were reunited recently for a trip to the zoo.

"The older ones," says adoption specialist Suzanne Stephens, "have told me repeatedly 'please find us a home so we can be with our siblings,' and that breaks your heart because usually kids don't say those kinds of things to you."

At 5: Blood pressure and stroke

UNDATED (CBS) -- A new study finds that even people with blood pressure slightly above normal may be at increased risk of stroke. 

Researchers analyzed the results of 12 previous studies that followed more than half-million adults with prehypertension.  And what they found was disturbing. 

Doctors says the findings are a big concern because one in three people in the U.S. has prehypertension.

Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum says, "One of the greatest contributors to pre-hypertension is really obesity and we are ll eating too much, gaining too much weight."  Cardiologist  Dr. Steinbaum says if your blood pressure is less than 130 over 80, you're on the right track.  diet, exercise, low salt and not too much alcohol can help get you there.

California researchers based their findings on 12 previous studies that involved more than half a million people.

School attendance policies change in Arkansas

Little Rock, Ark. (KTHV) -- A new school attendance policy went into effect this fall for all public schools in Arkansas.

Representative James McLean of Batesville sponsored Act 1223 to discourage truancy. It, more specifically, restricts students from missing an excessive number of school classes each year.

This new law no longer recognizes absences as excused or unexcused. It's now up to each school district to decide how many days students are allowed to miss each semester.

Unexcused and excused. Two words that will no longer be used to describe school absences. That's according to a new state law enforcing stricter attendance policies in Arkansas schools.

"The intent behind the law is to discourage students from skipping school basically," Judy Wilber, General Counsel for the Pulaski County Special School District.
