We are pleased to share information about these two cute brothers Jordy and Herman. Jordy was born in June of 2009 and Herman was born November of 2010. Jordy and Herman are both said to be healthy and their physical development is in the norm for their age. They are very close to each other.
Jordy loves to participate in various games with friends and peers, preferring football and basketball. Jordy takes some time to warm up to people he doesn’t know. Once that trust is made, he freely talks about his situation and shares about the things that excite him. Jordy has a warm and close relationship with his younger brother Herman. Jordy is in the seventh grade. Test results show an IQ in the lower limit of average intelligence. Jordy does well with math and memorization. He is close to his foster family and their extended family circle. Jordy states that he helps his host family with various activities – carrying firewood, serving food at the dining table, walking the dogs, etc. He has friendly relations with peers and children from the village where he currently lives. The children invite him to play activities together, but when he is alone he spends his time surfing the Internet and playing games. The boy’s attitude towards adults is respectful and polite. Lately he is concerned as he is leaving his foster family for a group home. He is anxious to be adopted quickly and along with his brother Herman.
Herman is friendly and shows tenderness towards animals. He defines himself as a good child and expresses a positive assessment of himself. He can be self-willed at times and does what he wants but can be directed to assigned tasks and does them willingly. There is no manifestation of aggression or depression. Herman prefers physical activities such as football but also enjoys role-playing games such as playing he is a policeman chasing a criminal. When he is alone, he prefers to ride a bike or play with a tablet. Herman is in the sixth grade. He was assessed as a child with Special Educational Needs. Often he works quickly and makes mistakes because he is anxious to have time to play. Herman too is anxious about leaving his foster home and moving to a group home. He does not feel confident he and his brother Jordy will ever be adopted.
We need a family quickly who can give these boys hope that they will not have to live in a group home for long and can look forward to having a family of their own. The staff member in Bulgaria who met the boys says they have almost lost faith in ever being adopted.
