PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — For sixteen-year-old Robert, music comes naturally.  He taught himself how to play three instruments:  “Drums, electric guitar, and piano.”

And he says it’s sort of therapeutic.

“I do it by my mood, because music can play how you’re feeling.  So, when I’m feeling something, it’ll usually just play out,” he says.

He’s not sure what he wants to do when he grows up, but he says he wants to make a difference somehow:

“Like Albert Einstein: he made a difference that people remember forever.  I want to be like that.  I want to be somebody that people remember.”

To get there, he says, he needs a permanent family.

“Somebody that won’t judge you for what’s on the outside, but will judge you for who you are on the inside.  On the inside I’m really caring, loving.  That’s all I need, is a little more love and care in my life,” he says.
