Under a pavilion at Druid Hill Park, a little girl deftly twirled a hula hoop. The spry 10-year-old easily matched dance steps with a crush of practiced teenagers and sat patiently while a volunteer painted her face with feline features. But the minute she spotted her brother, she raced toward him. She held him in a fierce hug, saying the 11-year-old's name over and over. The pair had not seen each other since Easter. No one better understood that reaction than Shantel Randolph, a former foster child who organized the picnic to reunite siblings in foster care.
