OKLAHOMA CITY – For Braison and Jordan, there is no denying the love the two brothers have for one another.
The brothers, who are 5 and 6 years old, haven’t lived together for two years but miss the days when they could spend time together.
“Oh, we like to do anything together, like bake and karate,” Jordan said.
The boys were placed in DHS custody three years ago and are currently living in two separate foster homes.
Now, they said they want to get adopted by a ‘forever family.’
“For me and Braison to live together,” Jordan said.
Their permanency planning worker said they are very energetic kids who would do best in a two-parent household. She said they are adamant about being together.
“All they talk about when they talk about forever homes is my brother, my brother, my brother,” said Elsie Chocho.
Chocho started working with Jordan and Braison two years ago.
“They are 5 and 6 now, but they understand what a forever home is. ‘This is where we’re going to live for the rest of our lives. These are people who are going to love and care for us,” Chocho said.
With a bit of discipline and a stable home, she said she believes the brothers will thrive.
“That perfect family has yet to step forward and say, ‘Hey, we’ll do this,’” Chocho said.
