Martin and Bruno need an adoptive family

12-year-old Martin is a calm boy who is initially shy with adults but much more open with peers and younger children. He enjoys hugs and having his hair styled. He creates friendships that last over time and is kind, supportive, helpful, and a leader. Martin likes petting dogs, drawing, building things, exploring new places, playing video games, and interacting with technology. He is a very physically active child with a knack for gymnastics, capoeira, football, soccer, and basketball.

11-year-old Bruno is a very affectionate child who loves physical contact, hugs, and kind words. He is open to interacting with adults when he first meets them and asks questions to get to know them. When interacting with younger children, Bruno shows interest in their well-being, enjoys playing with them, and can demonstrate affection. He sees older children as role models and can be easily influenced because he wants to be accepted. Bruno is a very physically active child and loves sports like soccer, gymnastics, basketball, and capoeira. He enjoys computers and video games, doing origami, arts and crafts, and playing with marbles. He has found a taste for cooking with small recipes, coloring mandalas, and watching cartoons.
