Derek is 13 years old and could be the next Picasso! He is very artistic and especially loves to draw. He is also inspired to play the piano at church and is taking piano lessons to improve his skills. Derek is an outgoing youth who loves to be the center of attention. Derek loves animals and would like to be adopted by a family who has pets. Derek believes adoption would mean a new chance for him. He is bonded with his current foster family and responds well to the structure of their household. His foster parents state he is helpful around the home and works well with supervision. He would do best in a two-parent household and the number of siblings is inconsequential. Derek would be a great big brother—he’s great with younger children! To learn more about Derek, or about foster care needs and opportunities, please call 800.FOSTER.3 (314.367.8373) or by email Edna Green at firstname.lastname@example.org.
