OKLAHOMA CITY - Damien and Dominic love going to church every week with their foster parents.

The brothers are soft-spoken and very polite.

Dominic, who is 13 years old, looks up to his big brother Damien, who is 15 years old.

The pair have been in DHS custody for a decade but have lived with the same foster family for eight of those years.

However, they said they've always known it wasn't a permanent home.

"I want to have a family so, when we grow up, we have a place to go, and that's why I want a family," Dominic said.

"Because we want a family to go to. When we grow up, we have nowhere to go to, so then we'll spend time with family,” Damien said.

The brothers love going to church every week with their foster parents.

Despite not having a permanent home, they are centered in faith.

"I think it is fun, get closer to God," Damien said.

When they are not spending time at church, Dominic loves to play video games on the Xbox.

Damien likes to play as well but enjoys the great outdoors.

"X Box games or go outside. Find a tree, I can climb," he said.

The boys are also looking for adventure with a new family.

"Go to an island, like somewhere we've never been before, like out of the country or something," Damien said.
