This 14-year-old who’s currently in foster care is always up for an adventure. “I like to do science experiments plus making volcanoes,” said Christopher. But what he really looks forward to is finding his future family.

“I would love to be adopted so I could have my own home,” said Christopher talking about his future parents – or parent.

“Chris would do just fine in a two-parent home or a one-parent home where they were willing and able to make sure that he gets all the services he needs to be successful. And to continue to support him into adulthood,” said his worker.

“Chris would do well in a home where either he was the only child or [with children who] were older than him or around his age,” she added.

She said Christopher is an outgoing and loving person who likes to meet new people.

“He’s always saying hi to people he sees on the street. He’s very social. He has good leadership skills, and he’s often one of the house leaders at his placement,” she explained.

He is somebody who also wants to lend a hand to others.

“When I grow up I want to be a paramedic because I want to help people,” he explained.

When it comes to his free time, he is a creative soul.

“I like to draw. I like to play video games,” he said. He also likes to play basketball, soccer, and ride his bike. 

Anything having to do with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles interests him as well.
