If you ask Lucas about his favorite color, you might be surprised! Narrowing down to just ONE favorite would just not cut it for this kid; his top colors include blue, purple, yellow, green, light green, violet red, and violet teal. After listing all of those colors, it is sure to whip up an appetite, and Lucas loves eating catfish, shrimp, BBQ chicken, and chili dogs. Swimming and playing outside are always a good time in his book. Lucas also likes riding his bike around the block. Pumpkins and clocks are just two of the things he loves to draw. Lucas has positive relationships with adults and peers and is known for his attentive and respectful nature. If he had superpowers, he would want to catch all of the bad people in the world, and he dreams of becoming a police officer when he grows up.

This first grader is performing well in school.

Lucas would do best in a two-parent family; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He will need to remain in contact with his brothers following placement. His caseworker says, “Lucas’ biggest goal is to have a family that will love him and care for him each and every day.” Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.


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