Henry and Robert are friendly brothers of African American descent. Their social worker describes the boys as having very similar personalities and interests. Henry, 10, and Robert, 11, are both very outgoing and make friends easily. They enjoy being active, whether they are playing outside or engaging in sports related activities. Some of their other interests include music, dancing and playing video games. They both do well in school.
Henry and Robert are ready for adoption and their social worker is open to placing the boys in any type of home with at least one male parent. They would benefit from being in a home where they can be the youngest or only children. Any interested family should be willing to maintain an Open Adoption with their birth mother. Henry and Robert also need to maintain their connection to their sibling who is placed separately.
