Portrait of Rickey

  • Birth Year: 2006
  • Child ID: 221270
When Rickey sees a German Shepherd, he will likely light up with joy! This breed of dog is a favorite for this teen. Rickey delights in playing sports, especially basketball and football. Red is always his first-picked color, and he loves snacking on spicy Takis. If Rickey isn’t playing basketball, one can count on watching the Lakers dominate the basketball court. He thinks possessing super-speed would give him an edge over his competitors if he could pick his superpower. In real life, Rickey’s best strength is his ability to make friends. Showing and receiving respect is huge to this fellow, who always does his best with adults. Rickey enjoys reading the bible and attending church. Along with having a family, he can see himself as a shooting guard for the Lakers or a school principal when he is older. He is now in the ninth grade. Rickey would do best in a Christian family with pets; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. 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.
