Meet 14-year-old Louis.

He dreams of taking vacations, playing games with his parents, and just laughing with a family.

Louis likes to play video games and enjoys simple things like watching cartoons. He likes to rap, and dance to old-school music and wants to be a YouTuber when he grows up.

Louis’s forever family would be patient and able to meet his unique needs. They would also help him keep in contact with his twin brother.

If you think you could be Louis’s forever family, or for another Texas child, call toll-free 800-233-3405 or log on to for more information.
