Richard, 11, dreams of becoming an engineer and designing big buildings. His passion for building led him to create a model of the Titanic after reading books about it, and he loves to share facts about the ship with others. He is a big fan of Legos, which allows him to indulge his love of designing and building.

If he had three wishes, they would be to go on a vacation, to play quarterback on a football team, and to be adopted.

Nathen, 12, envisions a career as a quarterback for a professional team and can frequently be found on the football field or in the neighborhood, honing his skills. A music fan, he was delighted to receive a small drum for Christmas and is looking forward to beginning lessons.

If he had three wishes, they would be to play professional football, to be adopted, and to visit China because he thinks it's a cool place.

Richard and Nathen live in the same foster home and are very close. They need to be adopted together. Their ideal family would be a mom and a dad who would share their enthusiasm for playing sports and attending sporting events.

The brothers and other children are available for adoption. For information, contact Anna Coleman at the National Adoption Center.
