Let us introduce you to Erick, a really well-rounded teen with big plans for his future! Erick has so many varied interests that we're sure you'll easily find at least a few things in common with him. Erick loves to stay busy and has a passion for activities like fishing, camping, doing wood working projects, bowling and playing basketball and football. He's looking forward to family days spent adventuring as well as lazy days at home together watching his favorite teams, the Dallas Cowboys or the Boston Celtics, play. Like most teens, Erick enjoys watching movies and playing video games in his down time. Erick also loves to read and to express himself by writing music. A family that loves to travel and try new things would be a great match for him!
Erick is a resilient young man who has shown a lot of growth and responsibility over the past few years and has been focused on becoming more independent. He enjoys cooking his own meals at times, particularly quesadillas, and has worked a part-time job. Erick has also been prioritizing keeping his grades up in school and is really proud of his effort in this area. He has high aspirations for himself and dreams of one day becoming a doctor, maybe even a neurosurgeon!
Erick may be getting older, but that has not deterred his longing for a Forever Family to call his own. Erick needs a family that understands trauma, grief and loss and the challenges it can create for kids. Parents who can provide clear expectations and structure, but also be fun-loving, forgiving and easy going, would be an exceptional fit for him! Erick will do best as the only or youngest child in the home. He would ideally love to find his adoptive home in the Eastern Idaho area in order to keep some of his important connections, however Erick and his Permanency Team are also open to hearing from and considering families who reside outside of the area who may be a good match for him.
Finding a committed, loving family is sure to be life-changing for this amazing teen and will help him continue to grow, thrive and move forward with the bright future that he envisions for himself! If you think that your family sounds like a great fit for Erick, we're looking forward to receiving your inquiry today!
