These brothers have personal connections that they would like to maintain in the pacific northwest and florida, families that can provide in person contact with these connections would be best for the boys.
Brothers Ethan, Luke, and Tommy have experienced an enormous amount of loss and trauma in their short lives and are very deserving of a safe, loving, permanent adoptiove home. Despite their profound losses, each boy maintains a sense of positivity and a zest for life and is trying his best to make the most of his childhood.
Ethan is a friendly, kind, helpful young man who likes to please others. He is understandably guarded with his feelings about his past experiences, but he enjoys being around people and makes a remarkable effort for a 13-year-old boy to engage with his foster family and with his peers.
After being at a new school only one month, Ethan voluntarily joined the basketball team and is already talking about joining the baseball team in the spring. He has made
several friends and initiates extracurricular social activities with them. He enjoys cooking, drawing, listening to music, and playing computer games in his free time.
Luke is a sweet little boy with a budding sense of humor. He loves to make people laugh and is working very hard at learning how to tell a joke properly. He is quite active and has a natural athletic talent -- he's been taking ice-skating lessons for several months and not only loves it but is developing a genuine skill. He is social and affectionate and loves to have his foster mom's undivided attention.
Tommy also loves to have his foster mom's undivided attention and functions best in a one-on-one setting. He is busy and curious and can always find something to captivate his attention, even if that something gets him into a bit of mischief. He is loving and affectionate and wants very much to connect with people on a physical
level. He loves superheros, cars and trucks, riding his bike, and dumping all of his toys on the floor in one big pile.
Ethan, Luke, and Tommy are all bright children who are intellectually and academically capable. Ethan and Luke were home-schooled by their father (Tommy was too young at the time) and seem to be quick, eager learners. Ethan has some difficulty with his current math class but otherwise does not exhibit any school challenges -- academic or behavioral.
