PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Michael loves basketball and video games.

But what really gets this 13-year-old talking?   Trains.

“I like the history — and the trains and buses and stuff,” he says.   His dream is to be a train operator one day.

He also likes to draw — something he enjoys doing with his younger brother, Jabriel. Their social worker, Kareema Spearman, says these two share a bond that needs to be nurtured.

“Michael and Jabriel — sometimes they can be opposites.  Michael can be pretty reserved, Jabriel more outgoing, but they complement each other,” she says.  “They love being around each other. Typical boys (they), horse around, like to draw, play video games.”

Next week, we’ll meet Michael’s brother, Jabriel.
