Loving Foster Homes Needed!

Meet Ellis

Hi! My alias is Ellis…not my real name, just a cool one I came up with! Yep, I’m a volunteer fireman! How cool is that? I know…right! Pretty darn cool! I’m sort of an adrenaline-rush type of guy who seeks an adventure and most importantly, to have fun! Guess what else? I’m also an athlete! I lettered in football this year even though I’m a freshman, and I tried out and made it on to the wrestling team. I’m not the best at wrestling, but I’m also not a person who gives up easily…I’m going to stick it out to the end! That’s what I want most in a family: one that will stick it out to the end! I’m the type of guy who likes to make other people happy and keep everyone entertained. I’m also very loyal to those folks who I consider family…I have a bunch of them! Family to me is not just blood…it’s the people who make the time you spend with them count the most. For instance, a family to me is made up of people who care for one another while at the same time hold each other accountable. Sometimes I need some guidance, and who do I turn to: family! I have many people who I look to as family and who have been with me on my journey, and I hope to add more too.

What kind of family am I interested in? Well, for starters, I want a two-parent home. Now, what that looks like is really not that important. I need people who will love me and treat me as one of their own…even if I do something boneheaded! I’m not perfect…I brag too much sometimes and maybe…just maybe I stretch some facts…but that’s about it. I’d really want a family who will allow me to be active in the community and in the school. I am a multi-sport athlete and have some skills in football that are pretty impressive. People say I have some leadership skills and a lot of energy, so I like to put them to good use! I’m also a volunteer fireman for a local company…I’d like to continue that as well so that I can learn Mod-1 and Mod-2, along with C.P.R. I also have job skills…I definitely worked at a Renaissance fair last year and that was EPIC! And, I am a big helper around the house! I’m usually the first one up, and I’m also the first one to volunteer to do extra chores like sweeping, mopping, scrubbing, grass cutting…you know…the fun stuff! Legit, my room is always…ALWAYS…spotless! I have a lot of dreams for what I want to do in the future…carpentry, automotive, stuff where I can use my hands. Finally, I really LOVE video games and chilling out with the family watching movies and television shows…I have too many to list on here! Oh…I forgot something…I’m cool with pets, and dogs love me…just sayin’!
Remember: I’m loyal…I’m loving…I’m affectionate…and most importantly…dogs love me!
