    Bless his heart. If i had a big enough home I would take all three of them just to keep them together. Foster homes can be grueling for siblings. Unfortunate. I know i have been through it. Some do it because of the income it will bring and others just do it like a puppy mill. But very seldom are a forever home. I pray this young man and his siblings find a home that will keep them together. Keep your head up kiddo.
