Broth­ers en­joy sports

Boston Herald - - THE EDGE • ADVICE -

Brauk and Blake are fun-lov­ing sib­lings of Cau­casian des­cent. Brauk, 11, is a pleas­ant, polite boy with a good sense of hu­mor. He likes to know what is go­ing on around him and is so­cial. He likes to be out­side and en­joys play­ing sports. Brauk also loves to go to church. He is fas­ci­nated by God, re­li­gion and gospel mu­sic. Brauk is well-liked by his teach­ers and peers but needs to put forth more ef­fort into aca­demics to get the results he wants. At times, he needs things ex­plained to him a cou­ple of times to process them.

Blake, 10, likes to stay ac­tive. He is even-tem­pered and relates well to adults and peers. He can be shy when he first meets some­one, but once he gets to know some­one, he opens up. He is a nat­u­ral ath­lete who loves all sports and is good at them. He plays on a street hockey team, and be­cause of his skills, he was moved up a level to play with older chil­dren. His dream is to be a pro­fes­sional hockey player when he grows up. Blake does well in school and is liked by teach­ers and peers. He has many friends.

Legally free for adop­tion, Brauk and Blake re­quest to live in a home to­gether with a mother and a fa­ther. Their so­cial worker is open to other chil­dren be­ing in the home. A pre-adop­tive fam­ily should be will­ing to fol­low an open adop­tion agree­ment with the birth fam­ily, which in­cludes two vis­its a year and let­ters and pic­tures once a year. An ideal fam­ily should com­mit to main­tain­ing con­tact with Brauk and Blake’s two bi­o­log­i­cal sis­ters, who were placed to­gether in an­other home in Mas­sachusetts.
