This boy is quite the gentleman who cares about others but he's in need of a family to help care for him. He currently lives in a group home and he wants a loving and caring permanent family to call his own.

This fifth grader dribbles, shoots, and scores in both sports and academics.

"I try to do my best to do good at school so my grandma will be proud of me," Greg said.

Greg is aiming for a bright future by working hard to get good grades in school. In his spare time this 11-year-old doesn't sit around. He's busy either playing sports, cards, or video games.

Greg showed me his skills at Pokemon cards. He taught me how to play the game even though I'm not very good at it.

This patient kid is wild about animals especially a certain type of lizard-blue-tongued skinks.
"I don't like scorpians or tarantulas. I like cats and dogs and blue- tongued skinks.

His favorite part of school is physical education. His favorite activities during physical education classes are running, jumping rope, and dodge ball. He especially enjoys playing and watching football and basketball. Some day he hopes to try out wrestling.

He practices at school and at the group home where he lives which he's hoping will change soon because he wants to become part of a forever family.

"Like a mom and a dad and probably one brother and sister."

A parent's embrace to come home to after school each day and parents to go out to eat with.
"What food do I like? Meat. I like to eat a lot of meat," Greg said.

Thanks to Wendy's Greg got what he wanted Monday- a triple burger with cheese and fries.

When we went into Wendy's he held the door for all of the ladies and always said pleas and thank you.

He's a young gentleman putting others before himself who wants and needs the chance to be part of a family's team.
