This aspiring engineer is Ryan. Always curious about how things work, he can often be found building things and taking them apart. Being outside brings a smile to his face, and his ideal day would include fishing and riding his bike until the moon comes out. One of Ryan’s current endeavors is building a treehouse! Known for his kind-heartedness, this kid enjoys spending one-on-one time with the important adults in his life and with his friends. He also has fun helping around the house and is generous towards others. If asked what his favorite color is, Ryan is sure to say green. He is fond of animals and especially loves cats.

This seventh grader does well in school and favors math and science.

Ryan would do best in a two-parent family in a rural location, with pets in the home; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He is hopeful to become a big brother. Ryan appreciates the quiet nature of the countryside and being outdoors, and desires to live in the country but not on a farm. He would like to maintain contact with his CASA following placement. 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.
