“I think grown ups are supposed to look out for kids” -Day’Breon
“A family to me is not being alone and always having someone to support you.” – Day’Qwan
Day’Breon is a 13-year-old boy and is in the 7th grade. He enjoys riding his bike, swimming, playing video games, building with LEGOs, and hanging out with his friends. He is an excellent cook, loves preparing meals for his family. He is an active member of his youth group at church, and regularly attends weekend camping retreats with them. He is kind and helpful, has a great sense of humor, and loves to make others smile. He is quite sociable, always up for an adventure, and eager to try new things.
Day’Breon would like a forever home where he feels loved and respected, and free to be himself. He would like to maintain his balance of social activities and family time. He values himself as an individual, and he needs to ensure that his voice is heard when decisions are being made. While his personal space and autonomy are important to him, he hopes for support, advocacy, and guidance as he continues his teenage journey.
Day’Qwan is a 10-year-old boy and is in the 5th grade. He enjoys drawing and coloring, building with LEGOs, riding his bike, playing games, and listening to music. His faith is important to him, and he would like to continue attending church services. He is sociable, loving, and always ready to greet his family and loved ones with a big hug. He loves to tell jokes—he is hilarious, and he never fails to make others laugh. He is wildly creative and smart, and asks lots of great questions. When he grows up, he wants to be a teacher.
Day’Qwan hopes to have a forever home alongside his brother, Day’Breon. He desires a loving, supportive family who will accept and nurture him, and will be willing to fiercely advocate for his needs.
Both of these boys get along well with other children and family pets. Continued contact with lifelong connections and approved members of his birth family should remain a priority for these siblings.
