He loves pizza with cheese and peperoni, but not mushrooms.
And he's is always eager to offer a helping hand around the house.
But his best quality perhaps, is that he never meets a stranger.

He doesn't have the hat or the boots, but there's no hiding the cowboy inside Zach.
This 11-year old lives and breaths country, from the tunes, to the sports, and of course the lure of a rod and a reel.

He also loves to travel, and enjoy all the little things this world has to offer.
When he's not monkeying around, this guy actually enjoys school! He even says his favorite part is homework, because it's easy.

Homework isn't the only thing that comes easy for Zach. He has a way of making you feel like you've been friends forever.

"The first time I met him, I liked him instantly. We've had a good time together and there was an instant bond there," Zach's social worker, Melissa Harris says.

Now, Zach is looking to finally bond with a family.
"He said that he would like to have a mom and dad that would love him and take care of him. The thing all kids want," Melissa says.
He also wants a big brother, someone to show him the ropes.

He's been through a lot of ups and downs, and looking through his scrapbook, there's one word that stands out. Survivor.
