Elijah: “Yes.”

Gloria: “What makes him such a good friend?”

Elijah: “We stick up for each other.”

Right now, Elijah is looking for a forever family — one that includes his best friend.

“They need a home together,” Hochman says. “Right now, they’re living in separate foster homes, but they both long for the time when they can stay together.”
