Tuesday's Kids Success Story: Richard

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE CITY, Va. -

During our Tuesday's Kids series, we want to bring the reality to the forefront, that hundreds of kids right here in Southwest Virginia, are still searching for their forever homes.

And we always like to share success stories with you!

We bring you Richard's success story!

He was 10 years old when we met him in the Spring of 2010.

He was a little shy, but his smile is contagious!

We are happy to report, he has found his forever home.

His adoption is not yet finalized, but he is placed with his family.

We're told he is doing great, loving his new school, making new friends, and the best part, enjoys being a part of his new family!

Adoptions do take time, and it's expected his should be finalized next year.

As we said, there are still hundreds of kids still searching for their forever homes.
