Eleven-year-old Ricky has a gift for creating – whether drawing or painting, this young man brings pages to life!
His creativity extends beyond the page though. Just watch as he expertly constructs architectural wonders with his Legos. Ricky’s also got a sporty side and is a diehard fan of the Denver Broncos. If you were to ask him to choose a restaurant, the answer is a cinch. McDonalds! And this guy will never, ever turn you down for a bowl of ice cream… a plus on any day.
Ricky is extremely bright. He is a wonderful reader and grasps new concepts quickly at school. He has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) designed to guide him through the many components of the classroom: social, academic, emotional, etc.
For many years, Ricky didn’t get the attention or affection he deserves. As such, he needs a family who is ready to unconditionally pour both out on him now. He will do best in a family where he is the only child at home, so he can be free of any sense of competition for that attention. Ricky does have a younger brother and it will be important for his family to help him maintain their connection in the years to come.
