"Are they nice Devin?” questioned Zane. “He said Yes. Awe look at the Alpacas."

There's nothing better than exploring the outdoors and learning everything there is to know about Alpacas.

"Look, pet him! Pet him!” Screamed Dane.

Zane and his little brother Devin were pumped up for their VIP Tour here at the Royal Oaks Alpacas Farm in Bryan.

"If you pet him [Alpaca] on the head, he'll drool!" Zane said.

Other than a love for all things outdoors nine-year-old Zane loves sports. He's also super compassionate and interested in the people around him, including News 3's Photojournalist, Andrew Bray.

Zane: "I like football and basketball. What sports do you like?
Andrew: I like swimming.
Zane: Do you still swim?
Andrew: Yep I still do!"

Zane is a take charge kind of kid and loves the role he plays as a big brother. Devin is the youngest of his siblings and is inquisitive, a bit shy at first, but incredibly caring. Devin's three favorite foods are: hot dogs, chicken, and pizza. Like his older brothers, Devin loves to dance, listen to music, sing, and play sports.

These siblings are searching for a forever family—a mom and dad who is patient, who is kind and who can not only keep up, but support their love of learning and passion for the outdoors.

State Profile
Daylen is a funny and sometimes outspoken child. He loves to watch WWE and other forms of wrestling and his favorite character is John Cena. He likes to ride his bike and play outside. Daylen needs help identifying personal boundaries but can be a very loving child. He does not like to share his toys and would like people to ask him before taking his things. He likes Spiderman, Iron Man, and Tom and Jerry. Daylen describes himself as nice, talkative, sensitive, curious, and active. He reported that he really wants a mom and dad that would like to go on picnics, camping, out to eat, the beach, and skating.

Zane is described as being very articulate and a great helper. He loves to tumble, jump on the trampoline, and ride his bike. He likes to sing and dance and thinks his dance moves are the best. Zane’s interests include watching movies, playing video games, playing basketball, drawing, running, playing soccer, and fishing. He really wants a mother. He struggles with school and in the home and needs help with his boundaries.

Devin’s three favorite foods are hot dogs, chicken, and pizza. He likes Spiderman, the Hulk, and car (and the movie) toys. He enjoys playing basketball, going swimming, and playing video games. Devin will need swimming lessons though due to not being a very strong swimmer. Like his older brothers, he loves to dance, listen to music, do arts and crafts, sing, play basketball, and play football. Devin’s favorite color is purple. He will start Headstart this year to help with his boundaries and speech. He will need a strong advocate to ensure that all of his needs are met.

Characteristics of Adoptive Family Desired

The family that would best be fit for these kids would be a two parent family with experience in parenting children with trauma in their background. The parents would need to be nurturing, set appropriate boundaries, and advocate for all three children’s different needs. The family would need to be able to keep up with these boys since they love to play and be outside. The family would need to accept the children for who they are and where they are emotionally. The family will need to ensure that the children continue with therapy.
