March Forever Families

He's an all American boy.  This month in our Forever Families series we introduce you to Arthur! He loves baseball, basketball, and fried chicken and mashed potatoes.


The 16 year old is missing a very vital part of being an all American boy, his parents died and now he's in the foster care system.


However, Arthur wants to be adopted.



Shooting hoops is what Arthur likes to play in his free time.   


He's 16 years old and goes to the park occasionally to free his mind. 


"I was 3 when my mom died and 10 when my dad died," said Arthur.



For the most part, Arthur says he tries to block out his past and the fact that he doesn't have any parents of his own.



"I just don't want to think about it," said Arthur.



But he does think about it.  And every time he makes a lay up...he thinks of his dad.



"My dad would always play basketball with me and that's what I think a bout when I play," said Arthur.



Arthur lost his dad at 10 years old and his mom at 3 years old.



"My dad died of lung cancer and I don't know how my mom died," said Arthur.



But what Arthur does know is He’ll be going to Westbrook in August.



He practices basketball frequently so he'll have a fair shot on the high school team.



Arthur also wants a mom a dad to cheer him on from the stands.



"Somebody is going to see this and they're going to say you know what I want to adopt this kid," said Lanette Scott.



Lanette Scott is Arthur's caseworker.  She too was a foster child and knows the importance of having a family to call your own.



"You want to have that stability you want to know people are out there who care for you so you can reach your destiny your purpose in life, so it’s the ultimate goal to find a home for Arthur," said Scott.



"I would like a family who can be there for me and love me even when I do bad and stuff," said Arthur.



Arthur is looking for an unconditional love, something he had several years ago, but a feeling he longs to have again.



Arthur says he minds well and he makes good grades like A’s, B’s and an occasional C.



There are dozens of children waiting to be adopted.


If you are interested in adopting Arthur or changing the life of another child, call 951-3354 or log onto www adopt children dot org for more information.
