Adam and Antonio need a forever family to call their own

Posted: Updated:

The brothers you're about to meet were just moved out of an emergency shelter and placed in the care of a foster family. But now Adam and Antonio need a forever family.

Four-year-old Adam's enthusiasm about his brotherly love for Antonio is adorable. Antonio is two and has the sweetest, softest little voice. He is also a helpful little boy.

When News 8's Marcella Lee set her microphone on the ground to give Adam a hand at balancing, then little Antonio picked up the mic, not to play with it, but to hand it back to her.

Antonio is just starting to use his words and he does his best to keep up with his big brother who is in preschool.

The brothers are bilingual so a forever home in which Spanish is spoken would be a plus.

"Both boys are really great with listening and following directions. They really do a great job, so I think whatever family that they end up in for their permanent home, they're going to be just a great addition," said Barbara Wojtach with San Diego County Adoptions.

Adam and Antonio were living in an emergency shelter, until recently, when the county found a foster family for the boys.

The county is grateful for foster families who can offer comfort and stability for kids like Adam and Antonio.

"It's critical, we really need foster families who are able to just embrace the kids and provide them with what they need," Wojtach explained.

But ultimately, what these boys really need is a forever family.

"We're really just looking for a permanent home for them, a place where they can just land and thrive and grow because they're awesome kids," Wojtach continued.

If you are interested in adopting from foster care, or becoming a foster family, call 1-877-I-ADOPT-U to learn more about getting started. The County of San Diego offers monthly orientation classes.
