Ricky is a huge animal lover and has a knack for taking care of his pets. He likes horses, cats, dogs, anything that walks on four legs. Ricky also enjoys doing art projects. He can draw well and uses art to express himself. Ricky is in the 9th grade. He enjoys Math.
Ricky would like to have a mom. He would also like to have a dad as long as Dad is “really gentle.” He is also looking for someone who will have ingredients in the kitchen so he can cook. And, most important, he wants someone who will tuck him into bed at night.
Ricky needs a family who can give him a lot of attention and help him manage his emotions appropriately. Ricky will do best in a home as the only sibling so he can get the attention he craves and learn to love life and laugh again.
