Daveonno and Evonte would greatly benefit from a family that is open to keeping contact with their “grandma,” who is their foster mother. They would also benefit from a family willing to work through the hard times while praising the easy times. They would benefit from having someone to look up to like older siblings. The boys are eager to find security and structure in a forever family.
Daveonno, born Oct. 23, 2002, is a nine-year-old African American boy who loves to be around people and tries to please them. He enjoys playing basketball and being active outside. Daveonno likes to be fashionable and takes pleasure in picking out matching outfits for himself.
In the fall, Daveonno will be starting third grade and has an Individual Education Plan. He attends his specialized speech class but may need extra help in math, reading and writing. Daveonno responds well to rewards and praise as well as loss of privileges.
Evonte, born March 18, 2004, is a seven-year-old African American boy who loves being around people, especially if they are paying attention to him, and wants to do activities with him. He likes to play basketball and be active outside but also likes to be inside drawing and coloring. Evonte enjoys going shopping to pick out new, matching outfits.
In the fall, Evonte will be starting second grade and has an Individual Education Plan in place. He tends to act out in class, not follow directions and is hyperactive. Evonte, again like his brother, responds to rewards and praise as well as loss of privileges.
