Introducing Logan! Logan is a fantastic boy who loves action heroes, Legos, and comics! He is a high energy kiddo who is constantly in motion, loving to run and play outside. Logan has large brown eyes and a charming grin. He is on the petite side for his age. This boy is a real sweetheart who has a lot of love to give. He likes music and drawing, and really craves one-on-one attention from adults - Logan likes to snuggle almost as much as he likes to eat ice cream! (Which, if you haven't guessed already, is a lot!) Logan has experienced a lot of hardships in his life but continues to have a playful spirit and a loving heart.

Jakob is a unique and bright boy who can tell you all kinds of details about Dr. Who characters and props. An excellent student, he enjoys being academically challenged and wished he had access to advanced classes. Now in 9th grade, he plays trombone in the band and enjoys trips to the science museum and library. Somewhat shy and reserved, Jakob flourishes in environments with structure. He loves learning daily lessons like why laundry is important and how it works. His current foster father is helping him be flexible: "Dr. Who is a different character every few years!"
