Meet Ryder

If you ask Ryder his favorite sport, he’ll probably say dodgeball. He might say basketball or maybe football, both of which he is quite fond of. Or you know what, maybe he’d say soccer! The point is Ryder is a sports guy. He’s pretty much happy to play any sport, any time.

Personable, funny, and quick-witted, Ryder is a friend to all. It’s been proven that if someone needs a pal or a friend to show them the ropes, Ryder is quick and eager to be the one to do so. He’s proud of his own compassion and is almost always in tune with the energy of those around him. Above all else, Ryder truly wants to be the best version of himself.

Currently in the 6th grade, Ryder is a quick learner who likes reading and writing in school. He’s naturally smart and curious and tends to gravitate toward creative hands-on activities like science experiments. Ryder is also really musically inclined and can play the piano by ear. He also loves to sing and dance!

It’s clear that Ryder is open to change and helping to make a difference with people and in the world. Whenever Ryder thinks about his future, he indicates that he’d like to be in a career that may benefit youth who have been in similar situations to his own experiences, like therapy or law enforcement.

Ryder has stated that he wants to be adopted. When asked what he hopes to find in an adoptive family, Ryder has stated that he’d like a mom and a dad and to be the only child, as he thinks he’ll be most successful without other kids in the home.
