Two brothers bring a burst of energy to an inflatable park

Brothers Thomas and Tony were bouncing off the walls, literally, at the giant inflatable playground.

They each took turns impersonating Michael Jordan in the bouncy basketball court, and like little energizer bunnies, they kept going and going, only taking a break for water.

Trying to keep up with the boys was difficult, but the almost inseparable duo didn't have a problem keeping each other company. They say when it comes to finding a family, inseparable is how they'd like to stay.

"He doesn't want to leave me and I don't want to leave him," Tony said.


More Information

Tony and Thomas
News 8's Jennifer Borget has more on two brothers who are in search of a forever family.

Tony and Thomas did eventually get tired after bouncing around at Pump It Up Round Rock, but they said it's a place they'd love to go back to with their adoptive family.

Tony said he's more than ready to take the plunge.

"I can leave all the stuff behind, and just worry about my family and God and Jesus," he said.

Thomas was a little quieter on the subject, but he also has reasons for wanting a forever family.

"They love us a lot and then go play," he said.

And while finding the perfect match isn't a race. It's something they desperately want.

"Foster family — you have to do paperwork and stuff like that, and move around when new kids come," Tony said. "I need a family; me and my brother need a family because we've been praying if we can get a family."

Climbing up stairs and jumping through obstacle courses was no challenge for them. In fact, it was like practice for their future careers. Tony said he has his job choices narrowed down to a few things.

"A soccer player or a professional soccer player or a hero," Tony said.

Along the same lines, little brother Thomas said he wants to be a police officer.

"Go find robbers at night time, go in a police car," Thomas said.

The boys hope the right someone will answer their prayers and give them a family will help nurture those dreams as they grow up, together.
