About the Siblings
Jose and Christian are two smart, funny, and well-liked young men who are very bonded to each other. Jose is a very kindhearted person, and he has recently enjoyed volunteering at a local food bank. He also has a job, where he has shown great leadership potential and maturity. In adulthood, he would like to work with children or animals. He enjoys being on social media, listening to Christian or rap music, and watching horror movies. Christian is also a very compassionate child who is always concerned about other people's feelings. He is very creative; he likes to draw and is always open to trying new creative activities. He also loves technology, and he loves to play video games. He likes to play soccer and baseball, as well.
Both boys are very bright and have tremendous academic potential. Christian is about to start the 6th grade, and he gets good grades. He has expressed an interest in learning Spanish, as he was exposed to this language as a young child but is not fluent. His favorite subjects are math and science. Jose is about to start the 11th grade. Jose is usually more interested in the social aspects of school, rather than his schoolwork. His teachers always report that his poor grades do not reflect what he is capable of. Jose has a 504 plan to help him succeed academically.
Because of past traumas and losses, it will take time for Jose and Christian to learn to trust their forever family. They need a two-parent family that is calm, patient, and even-keeled. Both boys want to be adopted, and it's very important to them that they be adopted together. Jose has said that he wants an adoptive family to understand that he is different from most young men his age. Christian has said that he wants a family that doesn't yell and who is patient. Both boys would also like to stay within or near North Carolina so that they can see their other siblings as much as possible. These boys deserve a family who understands how loss impacts behavior and who is willing to stick by them, through thick and thin.
