Randy is adamant about wanting a forever family with the same ethnic background and who are "brown like" him with a sister and a younger brother.

He would benefit from a two-parent household that would be open to a slow transition process with consistent communication with his current residential placement.

Interested families must provide him the appropriate information and ethnic and cultural role models concerning his culture. This includes discussing racism and discrimination.  Interested families should understand Randy’s special needs and be trauma-informed.
