RICHMOND, Va. -- Meet brothers Jacob and Mark.

Jacob, 13, is a special little person with a huge heart! He loves to show his affection to others by giving hugs and kisses. Jacob enjoys playing with his LEGOs, with things that move and make noise, and the outdoors.

Jacob requires full-time love and assistance with his daily living skills; but he can perform some tasks independently.

He has limited expressive and comprehensive skills so he needs a family with a lot of patience.

Jacob reaches his full potential with consistency and a structured routine.

He attends public school full time and has special supports at school.

Jacob can get along with other children, but he prefers to play alone.

He has a special bond with his younger brother, Mark.

Mark, 12, is an active, energetic, and loving little guy. He enjoys riding his bike, listening to rap music, and playing sports.

Mark is independent and can complete his daily living tasks on his own.

Mark can clean his room, make his bed, and fold his clothes.

At times, he does need redirection and guidance in his daily activities. Mark is smart, expressive, and athletic and enjoys playing football and being outdoors.

Mark does well in school.

He loves his older brother Jacob and wants to be in a home with Jacob.

Could you be the loving family for these sweet young fellows?

In Virginia, we have hundreds of children who are ready for foster to adoption. In other words, these children are ready to find their permanent and loving forever families. As Connecting Hearts – A Deborah J Johnston Charity, celebrates National Adoption Month, our “30 Kids in 30 Days” initiative is to bring awareness to 30 kids or sibling who are available for forever homes, but also to shed light on the other almost 700 children who may not be seen. Our kids are all ages and races, they were put in foster care due to no fault of their own. To learn more and becoming a foster to adoption parent(s) click here.
