Dennis, 17 years old, and Lazarus, 15 years old

Dennis and Lazarus are avid football fans who love to emulate their favorite player, Aaron Rodgers. You can often find the two playing outside yelling, “Green eighteen. Green eighteen. Set. Hut!” Dennis and Lazarus are big fans of the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots, and the brothers often enjoy some friendly competition in playing these teams in Madden NFL 18.

Dennis at first is the more quiet of the two, as it takes him time to become comfortable with new individuals in his life. Once you have cracked through his outer layers, you will find Dennis to be a goofy, loving and sweet big brother. Dennis likes staying active and enjoys outdoor activities, his favorite of which is fishing. He sees fishing as a battle encompassing peace and patience all rolled into one day on the water.

Lazarus is the more outgoing brother. It doesn’t take him long to begin to open up. Lazarus is a happy, silly lovable boy. Three-pointers, alley-oops and dunking are all things you could find Lazarus practicing on the basketball court. Lazarus loves to play basketball with his brother, friends or alone.

The boys would like to be adopted together. Dennis and Lazarus’ new forever family must also be open to letting them maintain appropriate relationships with siblings who have been adopted separately.

“Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” with these two boys!

Our adoption ID is 61557

Child abuse is preventable
We can help change the lives of many children and teens.

A hallmark of PSF’s system of care is our belief that child abuse is preventable. We have found that by providing resources and supports to families in need on the front end, many can avoid reaching the crises that lead to formal child welfare involvement functions.

Monetary Donations
