A Place to Call Home: 2 brothers looking for a forever home

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Currently in Arkansas, 688 foster children will fall asleep waiting for a family to give them a place to call home.

Two brothers have been waiting since 2010. Through THV11's partnership with the Arkansas Department of Human Services, we share their story, with the hope someone out there will see it and adopt them.

Isaiah and Kelvin are thick as thieves. Both of them are 7-years-old. Kelvin is about to turn 8.

They're in heaven this day at Big Rock Fun Park.

"All of it was my favorite," Isaiah says.

The boys are antsy and don't want to talk much. Who would when you're staring at this?

They play game after game of skee-ball with tickets spewing out after each throw. They then cash it all in for toys of their choice.

Later on the bumper boats, Isaiah and Kelvin do their best to soak each other on this hot summer day.

There's also the go-cart track, which might've been their favorite. It doesn't matter really what their favorite activity was, only that the owner took time to let them know today that they matter and can do whatever they wish here. It gave them a moment to forget that they're foster kids up for adoption.

"I just dreamin of a family!" says Kelvin.

"A mom and a dad and they got kids," Isaiah adds.

These boys are short on words, but not on fun. They are typical little boys who do great in school and serve as junior ushers in church. They can only hope for a family of their own one day.

When THV 11's Dawn Scott asks if the boys can imagine what that would be like, the boys shake their heads.

THV11 gives a big thanks to Big Rock Fun Park for hosting the boys.
