Wednesday’s Child – Larry, 15, Has His Sights Set on College 

Wednesday's Child-Meet Larry

The following information is provided by Wednesday’s Child, an organization that helps Idaho foster children find permanent homes. 

Larry, age 15, is an active young man who describes himself as smart, silly, funny and a frequent jokester. He thinks that the two most important things for prospective families to know about him is that he’s a good kid whose biggest wish is to be adopted and that he would do anything just to be a part of a family again. Larry tells us that his biggest accomplishment is how he has worked tremendously hard to resolve his past trauma in a positive way. 

Things he enjoys include: trips to the zoo; amusement parks; playing football with friends; reading; watching movies; listening to country music; and playing video games. He’s also always up for bike rides, an epic Nerf Gun battle, and learning to cook something new. 

Larry isn’t sure yet what he wants to do later in life but is currently working hard in school and definitely has his sights set on attending college. 

His Permanency Team describes the best fit for him as a traditional family with a mom and a dad, and the team feels he will truly thrive in an environment where the dad is really positive and spends quality time with him. 

Larry is hoping for an active family that loves to do things together regularly. If there are siblings in the home, the best fit for Larry would be children close to his own age or older. Larry’s team is searching for families, preferably in Idaho, who have in-depth training or understanding regarding caring for children who are healing from difficult experiences. 

Larry has several siblings that he really hopes to stay connected to. A family that values his biological connections would truly help him be able to move forward in life, while also not having to experience even more grief and loss. 

Larry is anxiously counting down the days until he can finally join a Forever Family that truly sees in him qualities of value, worth and all he is capable of achieving. If Larry sounds like he’d fit right in with your family and you would like to learn more about this deserving young man, inquire at
