Our buddy Richard is just a fun kid to be around. He has a great personality and a great smile. He loves being outside and riding his bike or playing with friends, and he really enjoys playing football and baseball (and he’s good at it, too!). He shares a common fear with a lot of the kids on the Heart Gallery, though. Because of his experiences before coming into foster care, he doesn’t handle uncertainty very well. Unexpected changes and adjustments – even ones we might consider small or insignificant in the big scheme of things – can trigger feelings of fear, anxiety, and frustration within the context of a childhood defined by uncertainty, chaos, and constant motion. Richard is aware of his struggles with accepting change and going with the flow, and he’s tackled those obstacles head on and is making great progress. To keep the momentum going, Richard will need a two-parent family with older siblings to help guide him through his teenage years and show him what a family is supposed to be and feel like. That’s not too much to ask, is it? Richard deserves a great family, and he’ll make a great son, brother, and friend to the right one.

Age: 13
