Portrait of Andy

  • Birth Year: 2009
  • Child ID: 348725
Andy is a laid-back and cool teen who loves anything that involves football and basketball! He plays on his school’s basketball team and is one of the tallest players on the court. After the season ends, Andy plans to try out track to keep himself busy. His favorite basketball teams are the Charlotte Hornets and the Dallas Mavericks. His most liked football teams are the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens. Video games are another interest of Andy’s, but only if they are football and basketball games. A perfect day for him would be a Sunday afternoon watching football and eating wings and pizza from Imo’s, a St. Louis-style pizza restaurant. Andy likes street racing cars and says his favorite is the Dodge Hellcat. He enjoys listening to music in his free time and favors hip hop. He can be reserved around new people but funny and personable when comfortable. Andy greatly desires independence and talks about getting a job and an apartment when he gets older. He already has the paperwork to get a work permit when he turns 14.

He is now in the eighth grade. Andy works hard at school academically and is very serious about his grades.

He would do best in a family that lives in an urban area; however, all family types will be considered. Andy is very family-oriented and extremely close with his grandmother and older brothers. Thus, he has significant connections to maintain following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.


For Missouri children, both home studied and non-home studied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only home studied families from other states should do so.
