Texas Child

We are fun and active and enjoy being creative and exploring. Our wish is to have a loving family to share many laughs and joys together.

Derrick and Draylon are very close brothers who are looking for a loving family to raise them. Family and love is very important to both of them. Derrick and Draylon share a very close connection with one another, almost as if they are twins. They like to sing, dance, and enjoy entertaining together. The boys like to take care of and dote on each other. Derrick and Draylon are shy when you first meet them, but they warm up quickly. The pair is very animated and talkative when together. They each have their own personality. The brothers like to be independent as much as they like to be together. Of course, their favorite places to eat are McDonald’s and Chuck E. Cheese. Derrick and Draylon like to race around and see who can win the most tickets.

The brothers will benefit from a family who is positive, active, and participates in community activities. They will thrive in a family who is understanding, encouraging, and supportive as they transition into their new lives. Their parents will be patient, kind, and committed as well as have knowledge of trauma-informed interventions. The brothers will benefit from a family who will spend individual time with each of them. Their forever family will provide positive reinforcement and redirection in a structured home environment.
