DALLAS — Editor's note: This video originally aired in April. We are sharing Ethan and Evan's story again in hopes that the brothers will be adopted soon.
It's been said that brothers make the best friends.
Ethan and Evan are in foster care, navigating the system together and grateful that no matter what- they have each other.
We met up with 12 year-old Ethan and 10 year-old Evan at Dyno-Rock Indoor Climbing Center in Arlington.
When you're climbing, you have to have confidence and fun.
"It was fun. We raced each other when we was rock climbing. I won all of them because he's slow," said Ethan about his little brother.
Like a proper big brother, Ethan loves to tease Evan. They are best friends.
"He teaches me how to play basketball and helps me with my homework," said Evan.
Energetic and easy going Ethan and Evan have wonderful personalities.
"I'm intelligent, I'm athletic and I like to play basketball," said Ethan.
Both brothers are athletic.
"I like to play tennis," said Evan.
"It's important for me to exercise because I'm trying out for basketball next year," said Ethan.
Ethan is constantly making sure that his little brother is looking up and has everything he needs.
He also worries about their older sister who will be adopted separately. The boys love her and want to be in touch with her.
"She is 14 and she likes me and Ethan and she likes to play with us," said Evan.
Ethan and Evan would do well in a family that has a 2 parent household which can provide structure and rules.
"I want to be adopted because I just want to live a happy rest of my life until I grow up," said Ethan.
"I want a kind mom and nice mom," said Evan.
It has not been an easy climb, but Ethan and Evan are excited about the future and the family who will one day welcome them. Evan already knows what he will tell them.
"Thank you for adopting us and I love you."
