Meet 7-year-old River.

He’s an energetic young boy who loves talking about water towers, phone towers, or anything that has to do with building stuff. His favorite toy? Legos of course!

River also loves playing outdoors, always sleeps with stuffed animals and loves giving and receiving hugs.

He’s hoping to find an affectionate family that’s patient, one that can offer a life-long commitment with unconditional love.

If you think you could be River’s forever family, or for another Texas child, you can call 325-315-8247 or log on to adoptchildren.org for more information.
