HEART TO HEART: Meet Mickey and Harley

-

ABILENE, Texas (KRBC) - Past the gates of New Horizons live two very, sweet boys named Mickey and Harley.

"I want me and Mickey in the same house," 12-year-old Harley said.

The love he has for his 13-year-old brother, Mickey, is beyond what words can explain.

"He play XBOX with me, hang out with me and we be a family," Harley said.

The boys moved around growing up.

"I have to move me and Mickey till school we leave," Harley said.

They were in and out of school, so their learning is delayed and they are in need a loving and patient home. Harley has learning disorders in reading, math, and written expression, as well as borderline intellectual functioning.

Niki Terway is the boys' case manager. She told KRBC she adores them.

"They are very sweet boys. They're very challenging at times. They're very close to one another," Terway said.

The brothers have been at New Horizons for three years and three months. They have been looking for their forever home since 2014.

Harley loves superheroes and his favorite one is Antman.

His brother on the other hand, loves to be outdoors.

"I like to ride bikes, I like to play outside and just interact with others kids. Have fun being a kid while I can," Mickey said.

They both love big families and animals.

"They are active. They like to do things. They love fishing and catching minnows to feed the turtle, I think it is," Terway said.

The two are hoping their next lucky catch will be a family.

"I'm able to love and care for the family that's going to adopt me and I'm ready to accept going with them," Mickey said.

The brothers have expressed they would love to be adopted together.
