    Nine-year-old Adrian loves school and sports - math, science and soccer are his favorites. But what this well-rounded boy needs to continue to thrive is a forever family. And now, his five-year-old twin brothers may soon be looking for a home too. 

While families celebrate moms on this Mother's Day, three brothers wish they had a mom in their life. Two of the boys, who are identical twins, just turned six this past Thursday and the greatest birthday gift they could receive is a forever family. The need to find them a permanent home is urgent.

I first met nine-year-old Adrian earlier this year. The two of us had a lot of fun during our playdate at Boomers San Diego.

But Adrian also showed me his serious side, when we sat down to talk about his life in the foster system these past few years.

“Not good, it's been a struggle,” he said. “I don't like moving to different places. I just want to stay in one place, that's all.”

Soon after our story aired, however, Adrian's situation changed once again. Adrian's two younger brothers also became available for adoption.

Angelo (green shirt) and Emilio (white shirt) are identical twins who just turned six-years-old. And Adrian couldn't be more thrilled that social workers are now looking to find one forever family for all three of them.

“Yeah, I just want to be with my brothers and not get separated because I was like, separated from them for two years,” Adrian explained.

Adrian says living apart from Angelo and Emilio hasn't been easy, saying it has made him feel sad.

The need to find a forever home for these brothers is immediate.

“Really urgent, really. Because we want to avoid any other possible placement changes. We just really want something permanent. That's our main goal,” said protective services worker, Carmen Quiroga.

All three boys are living in an emergency children's shelter right now and social workers are hoping that the next move can be their last.

“It's been really difficult for them, there's been so many changes,” added Quiroga.

What Adrian, Emilio and Angelo deserve is stability and unconditional love from a family dedicated to nurturing these boys so they can continue to thrive.

If you are interested in adopting, or becoming a foster family, please call 1-877-I-ADOPT-U.

CBS News 8 would like to thank Boomers San Diego and also photographer Huy Nguyen with Reflected Light photography for volunteering his time to take the Heart Gallery portraits you saw in this story.
