BOSTON (MARE) - Chance and Keith are vivacious boys of African-American descent. Chance is a kind-hearted and soft-spoken child. He is described as gentle yet playful by those who know him best. Chance loves physical play such as basketball, soccer, bike riding, and swimming. He loves Pokémon and Legos, too. Chance reports that he likes school, and his favorite subject is math.
Keith is a quiet, reserved young boy who is known to be a good friend. He is very athletic and enjoys sports and participating in activities outside. He also likes to read. Keith is a great advocate for himself and for his siblings. He has great relationships with his caretakers and he is able to make friends easily.
Legally freed for adoption, Chance and Keith would like to grow up together in a permanent, loving family.
