Biography
What do a boxer, Steelers fan, and roller skater have in common? They’re brothers, of course!

Meet Ryker who is a soft spoken family man, much like his idol Troy Polamalu (former Steelers strong safety). As big Steeler’s fan, Ryker studies their plays and hopes to one day play football himself. One of his biggest goals is to learn to run fast, also like Polamalu. Sports aren’t his only passion as he enjoys utilizing his creative side to build Lego kit sets. Ryker thrives on being active and is always ready to engage in a friendly game of football. Ryker expressed that having an active family is essential to him. Creating an attachment to a parental figure is something Ryker has expressed a strong desire for, as having one-on-one time with a parent is something Ryker deems as both valuable and important. Ryker is a big brother and cares a lot about his younger siblings.

Lorenzo is the middle brother of the three brothers. And did you know that as a journeyman boxer you can’t go into a ring and look weak, you need to look exciting but not risky? As a journeyman boxer you might be entering the ring as an underdog but you always come out looking impressive. Just like a journeyman boxer, Lorenzo is ready to step into the ring and show you how impressive he is. He is an avid sports enthusiast with interests in, you guessed it, boxing, football and soccer! On Sunday’s in the fall you can find him wearing green rooting for his favorite team, the Philadelphia Eagles! He thrives on being active and is always ready to engage in a friendly game of football or soccer, often with his brothers. Lorenzo can be quiet at first and sometimes needs time before opening up. Having one-on-one time with a parent is something Lorenzo expressed is essential to him.

Meet little brother Jayden. Dust off your roller skates and come meet Jayden at his local rink! Jayden loves to roller skate and even owns his own pair. Not in the mood for skating? How about a baseball game? You won’t find a single ball park food Jayden doesn’t enjoy; he’ll even share with you as you try to catch those fly balls from the grandstand. He likes to be active and in the center of the action. He enjoys amusement park rides and sing-a-long songs with Elmo! He responds well to structure and thrives when ample notice is given on transitions. He has expressed he is open to any type of family, as long as he can be with his big brothers.

Lorenzo, Jayden, and Ryker are not yet legally free for adoption. The boys will do well in a home where they can be the only children.
