Duvan, 14, and his 7-year-old brother, Riley, need a family that is patient, active, loving, flexible and educationally supportive. If there are other children in the home, it would be best if Duvan and Riley were the youngest.

Duvan dreams of being an NFL linebacker, and football is his favorite topic of conversation. He plays tackle football in the park and has never gotten injured — he would tell you it is a safe sport if you know what you are doing. Duvan likes eating pizza and fried chicken, but enjoys most foods these days. He also loves a good cup of hot chocolate. Duvan plays his music whenever he can, but will take a break to play games on his PlayStation.

Riley is a fun-loving, high-energy guy. He likes making things, writing and coloring. He recently made an intricate airplane out of Legos. He will take on any puzzle challenge, especially if you are there to work on it with him. Riley also enjoys dancing, singing and just about any activity that the group has taken on.

He and his brother wrestle at times and because they are both very strong and agile, they need a ref nearby. Riley adores his big brother.

Only Minnesota families are being considered at this time. Ideally, the placement agency is hoping to match the boys with a two-parent family in the Twin Cities area.
