Meet These Amazing Kids!
These boys are special. It is clear that family is the most important thing to them. Dylan and Jonas are very close in age (Dylan is 13 and Jonas is 14) which allows them to be both brothers and best friends. They have a natural rhythm to their relationship that is nothing short of lovely—from the way they celebrate each other’s soccer victories to the way they describe each other. All they have is each other and they treasure their relationship above everything else. Unless a family steps forward soon, these amazing brothers will age out of the adoption system.
