15-year-old Tommy is an intelligent, handsome young man with many talents and a great personality. Tommy enjoys outdoor activities like fishing, hiking, basketball, and swimming. He likes fishing so much that he even chose to write a school paper about the Greek God of the Ocean, Poseidon. When not outside, Tommy relaxes inside by playing video games, reading, sketching or painting, and cooking. Tommy says he doesn't mind being indoors as long as it's in a tidy house! He jokes that he "hates a messy house." Tommy doesn't joke about his love of cleaning, though!
Tommy likes school because he does well. His favorite subjects are literature and art. He does well in both. Tommy's goal is to attend college and then begin his career as a Marine Biologist or maybe even a Nuclear Scientist!
Tommy wants a forever family who will show him new life experiences. He wants parents who will help him with his homework, have fun with him, and love him for the rest of his life. Tommy said, "Money can't buy love." He doesn't care if his adoptive parents are rich or poor, "as long as they love me." Tommy did say that he wouldn't mind living near a park, however!
Tommy also has a little wish. He would like to see a Cardinals game. If you would like more information about becoming part of Tommy's life or granting his little wish, please call the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition at 1-800-FOSTER3.
