Christopher is 17, and like most kids his age he loves playing video games. His favorite? “Guitar Hero.”
“I want to be a rock star when I grow up,” says Chris.
He is also a history buff, and he has a passion for creating art.
“I draw all sorts of stuff — Japanese animations like Martel, all sorts of stuff.”
Gloria Hochman of the National Adoption Center, based in Philadelphia, says it’s never too late for a teenager to find a home.
“Many people never think of adopting a teenager — it never occurs to them,” Hochman notes.
Christopher’s recruiter Chiquita says Chris’ biggest wish is a permanent family.
“He’s a happy kid who wants to belong and have a family of his own. He wants that, he needs that,” she tells KYW Newsradio.
