Tony is a healthy and happy teen. He is quiet and shy at times. Once he gains your trust he will open up and speak his mind. Tony is friendly and easy going. He likes to ride his bike, watch TV, and play video games. He likes playing football and basketball but prefers to draw. Tony needs assistance through supportive services to help him deal with his emotional difficulties and find coping skills that will help him express his emotions in a positive way. Tony needs a family that is willing to care for him long term and love him unconditionally. He expressed that he hopes to be adopted so that he and his brother can be raised together.

Thomas and his older brother, Tony, are extremely attached to one another. They currently reside in separate homes. Thomas looks up to his brother and loves him dearly. Thomas and Tony have been together since they were little and share a true sibling bond. When together, they enjoy horse playing, wrestling, playing sports, playing on the DS, and talking about what has been going on in their lives. Thomas and Tony are both healthy. Thomas is very straight forward with his opinions and at times seems to act before thinking. Tony is more quiet and reserved and prefers to not let others know what is going on. Both boys are very fond of their cultural heritage and hope to one day learn how to speak Spanish.

Tony needs a family that is patient, kind, and loving. The ideal family will be structured and have a flexible work schedule. Tony does not do well when he feels stressed by the actions of a caregiver.
