Kids to Love: Shane

You met his brother Thomas last week… this week I want you to meet Shane.

Shane is 14 and in the 8th grade.

Lee asks “What’s your favorite subject?”

Shane answers “P.E.”

Lee asks “What do you like about P.E.?”

Shane smiles and answers “You get to play”

Shane and his brother Thomas have been in and out of care for years.

“Do you wanna be adopted?” Lee asks

…Shane nods…

“Tell me what that’s important” Lee asks

“Cause I would have a family that cares and loves me and my brother.” Shane answers

“Why is it important you and your brother stay together?” Lee asks

“Because he’s my brother & I love him.” He answers

Cause I love him” Thomas says

Lee asks Thomas “Are you the older brother?”

Thomas answers “I’m the more mature brother.  He’s slow..”

“So you have to watch out for him” Lee asks

“Like when we’re in school somebody’s picking on him or something I have to stand up for him.”

Thomas answers.

His brother’s keeper…hoping to find a family to keep them together…
