14-Year-Old Boy In Foster Care Asks For “A Home and People That Love Me”

Like most kids his age, 14-year-old Darrious is looking forward to high school. He says he even hopes to play football and run track. But unlike most kids his age, what Darrious hopes for most is a family, and a place to call home. He is currently in foster care and lives with other foster kids in a group home.

He recently went on his local news channel WXII in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in the hopes that someone might see his story and want to adopt him. His gregarious, outgoing personality shines through in the interview.

Darrious, who has a wide, beautiful smile, had just had a special treat: spending the day with a police officer at the Greensboro Public Safety Training facility. After riding in a patrol car, hearing the siren, and learning how to give a proper handshake from Lt. Ryan Todd, he got ready for his on-camera interview. He says he wants to become a police officer or firefighter one day to save lives. But first, he’s got to get through his childhood, and Darrious would really like to finish it out with a family of his own. When asked how he would feel if he got adopted, he says, “Happy, because I would have a home and have people that love me.”

If that doesn’t cut your heart in two, I don’t know what will.
