Eddie is a 14-year-old foster child searching for loving parents.

“I like sports I like to be active, go to Pistons' basketball games and stuff like that,” he said.

He’s fun, loving, witty and easy going. Eddie says he doesn’t know what it’s like to have a mom or dad.

 “Have dinner together, they do things with you like sports, sports game after school,” he said. “I don’t really know because I only saw that when I was in foster homes.”

He’s featured in Art and Soul Oakland County’s exhibit, in hopes someone will give him a chance to have a family.

“It make you think that somebody is gonna see it or something,” Eddie said.

Eddie says he’s not picky when it comes to a family, but when he’s lonely, he dreams of the possibilities.

“Dog as a pet, mom and dad, people to play with,” he said. “Like an older brother.”

He may just be the perfect addition to your family.

“I haven’t been with one for so long and it would be real fun, it would be freedom,” he said.
