OKLAHOMA CITY - Two brothers, who were recently reunited in the same group home after being separated for a year, are looking for a family.

Zephaniah, 14, and Jerimiah, 16, have a strong bond.

"We hang out a lot, talk at school a lot, eat lunch with each other," Jerimiah said.

Jerimiah says he is always looking out for his little brother.

"Sometimes, we might go to a store, and he might not have enough money. I'll let him borrow a couple of dollars so he can get what he needs," Jerimiah said.

While they are extremely close, that doesn't mean they aren't social.

"I smile a lot. I play football and try to make friends the best I can," Zephaniah says.

"I have a lot of friends and hang out at school. Talk a lot, work on assignments a lot," Jerimiah says.

Both boys enjoy math and sports, but they have diverse ideas when it comes to careers.

"I want to be a barber, like haircut person," Zephaniah said.

"I want to be an underwater welder," Jerimiah said. "I like to swim and I like to fix things, like pipes and all kinds of different things."

Both boys were calm, laid back and gracious during an excursion to the Boathouse District.

Sweet boys waiting to find a stable family.

"I feel like if we had a family, there'd be more freedom and just getting to know someone who really cares about us and wants to be there for us, like a permanent connection basically," Jerimiah said.

"I guess just trying to find someone to finish my life with and not just living in group homes. Actually have like parents," Zephaniah continues.
