Wednesday's Child

14-year old Richard loves to play basketball. He's heading off to high school this fall and is hoping to make the high school basketball team.

Something else he's hoping for is a forever family. He says he'd like to live in a big home with games inside of it and a basketball court on the outside. He's also hoping for parents who are active and take him a lot of places. Richard says he'd like to go to baseball and basketball games, watch movies, and go swimming.

Just as Richard works with the basketball, he needs someone to work with him and become his role model. Someday, he hopes to return the favor and become a role model, himself. Richard wants to be a police officer when he grows up.

Richard says he wants to be a real kid in a real family. Maybe your family could give him a real shot at living his dream.
