Profile from the trio's social worker:
Dashawn is an outgoing and talkative 15 year old boy who is inquisitive and engaging. He likes to ride bikes, and enjoys living in the country. Dashawn is creative and really likes to build things, and will find whatever cast-off materials he can get to make projects at home. He likes horses and says he would love to care for them someday.
Dashawn likes art and music, and is a big fan of Lady Gaga. Dashawn can struggle with parental authority at times, and can be very sensitive to criticism, especially by his peers. Dashawn does pretty well in his special education classes at school. The ideal home for Dashawn would include his siblings, with mature parents who can help this group to grow into strong and capable adults.
Brashawn is a super-active 15 year old boy who can run all day. He is into sports in a big way. He especially likes basketball, and is always trying to get a game going. Brashawn also likes riding his bike. He enjoys the outdoors, but gets into video games and TV as well. Brashawn likes being loud and boisterous with his peers, and he loves to laugh.
