Legally freed for adoption, Daequan and Raya should be placed together with or without other children in the home. Their social worker is open to looking at all family constellations as long as the family can provide stability and structure throughout their lives. A family would also need to be open to letters and picture correspondence with Daequan and Raya’s biological mother.
