It takes TWO: Stan & Elijah


Twins! Eleven-year-old twins Stan and Elijah (not their real names, but these are their photos) live together in an orphanage in Bulgaria, where they have resided for the past two years. The brothers – who share a strong bond and are a lot of fun – are available to be adopted together through the Upbring International Adoption.

Truly a “dynamic duo,” the boys are very healthy and without medical or emotional problems. They both have been assessed as intelligent, with only a few minor delays due to growing up in a marginal home environment coupled with orphanage life. Both Stan and Elijah have completed second grade and their assessments show they are “good eaters and sleepers who demonstrate good personal hygiene.” Here’s a little about each of them:

  • Stan likes to play ball and watch movies. His academic skills and verbal fluency are slightly more advanced than Elijah’s.
  • Elijah likes to work puzzles, has a creative streak and likes to paint.
