For the last six years, Andrew has called many different foster placements his home. Now sixteen years old, Andrew is hoping to hit a home run with a forever family.

A fan of both football and baseball, Andrew was excited to take a tour of the Dell Diamond in Round Rock.

Outside of sports, Andrew also has a knack for building things and engineering. At school, he loves to participate in athletics and study math.

When he grows up, he wants to become a certified pilot and eventually work on trains.

Andrew’s moved around in foster care for years, and he says he's ready to settle down.

"It would feel good because I wouldn't have to move anymore," he said. "I've been in CPS for six years and it kind of got old. I want to be permanent and I get tired of moving."

Andrew wants a team by his side through life.

"Someone who will do stuff with me, like a brother,” Andrew said. “I'd like to become a bigger brother and have younger siblings."

He says he's picked up some talents of his own that he'd love to share with a younger brother.
