This new set of brothers was just added to our waiting children!
These brothers make up a sibling group and must be adopted together.
They used to be a part of a sibling group of three, together with their 15-year-old sister. They are now being ‘published’ as a single group of two boys only, because their sister’s life has changed a lot in the last year. She has been removed from the register and is no longer living in the group home. She is now married and living abroad.
At parting, the sister shared that due to being much older than her brothers she was always worried that her age is preventing them from being adopted and she is hopeful that now when she won’t be a part of the sibling group anymore and her age won’t be an obstacle for her brothers to find a forever family. She said that she will be praying for a family for her little brothers and that she will be more than happy if a loving family is found for them.
The older brother (KF - H1), now 13, was born in April 2003. Because he is over the age of 13 he will have to share his opinion about being adopted at court. He knows what adoption is and he states that he wants to be adopted. He is described as a sociable and friendly child. His is non-confrontational in his interactions. His physically active and agile and is able to adapt quickly to a new environment. He loves sports, listening to music, and watching TV. He is currently taking Taekwondo lessons.

The younger brother (KF - H2), age 6 almost 7, was born in October 2009. He is described as an active and sociable child. He enjoys group activities and interacting with his peers, very willing to participate in different things. He is able to learn and will start the first grade this coming fall. He and his brother are very attached to one another. Being the younger brother, he is seen imitating his older brother a lot of the time. He has normal physical and psychological development for his age group, despite being diagnosed with a heart defect known as atypical papillosphincterotomy.
With regards to his atypical papillosphincterotomy, it is described as mainly supravalvular with a gradient of 30mm. Feedback from the group home he resides at describes his condition as a mild valvular defect, meaning one of the valves in his heart is a bit tighter. It is being monitored through yearly prophylactic check-ups. The child does not need any medication or special way of upbringing. The defect is not causing any problems. He runs, climbs and plays and is as active as any other child, without experiencing any kind of difficulties. The prognosis is excellent as the doctors expect this child to outgrow this defect in the future.
