Texas Children

"We love the outdoors and playing basketball and football."

Harold and Alford are two very loving boys with lots of energy. They are both adorable and will lovingly tell their foster parents "I love you!" frequently. Harold and Alford play well together and love the outdoors, climbing, and playing basketball and football. They like to color together and play with toys that move. The boys keep themselves occupied with their toys and video games. They seem to really enjoy each other's company. Harold and Alford are very entertaining and love receiving lots of attention. 

Harold is a very loving boy. He likes to be close and will say "I love you" often. He is very energetic and will keep himself occupied by playing video games. He likes to write his name when you ask him and he will show you which toys are his favorite. Harold likes to explore his surroundings and will curiously touch anything that is around. He is an extremely inquisitive boy and will amuse himself with whatever is around him. Harold is also very active and will keep his foster family engaged throughout the entire day.

Harold requires prompting and redirection at times. He loves attention and when he feels he is being ignored, he will occasionally express himself in a physical manner. He does not like to stop playing, so occasionally has to be persuaded to go to bed.

Alford is a very lovable boy who has lots of energy. He will keep his foster family very engaged and feeling wonderful when he flashes his wonderful smile. Alford likes to play video games, especially DSI Nintendo, which has to be blue in color. He loves to play games with dinosaurs or other animals in them. He especially loves to be outside playing basketball and football.

Alford is a very curious boy who likes to explore around the house and the backyard. He will climb anything because he has a lot of energy and he will find ways to entertain himself. At times, Alford can act out verbally and physically, which requires redirection. He will sometimes tell fibs about him taking items without permission. He is very apologetic when he feels that he has disappointed others and he likes to hug and say 'I love you, Mommy!' a lot.

Harold and Alford need a family who will provide love, patience, and attention. They will do well with a one or two-parent household. It will be best for Harold if the family has no other children in the home besides him and his brother. It would be helpful for the adoptive family to have previous knowledge and experience with children having autistic spectrum disorders.  It is important that the family be very active and spends a good amount of time outdoors. The children would love to be adopted by a family who has a love for sports.
