RICHMOND, Va. -- Parents who have fostered or adopted an older child say their lives have been mutually enriched, something that benefits the entire family.
"A lot of what we do is a collaboration with her, and just being very honest that we've never parented a teenager before so we look for feedback," adoptive parent Margaret Steele said. "And it's helped us grow, not only as a family but as parents and as individuals. And really I think helped to make our family, much more connected through the process."
Isaac is an intelligent, funny, charismatic, and playful 15-year-old boy.
He loves to play video games on XBOX and likes to play sports such as football and basketball.
Isaac enjoys listening to rap/hip hop music, and you can often find him rapping along to his favorite song.
He's sometimes bashful about singing, but when no one is looking, he can belt it out.
Isaac would benefit from a loving single mother household with a lot of open space for him to grow and explore outdoor activities and travel.
Isaac would love to go to the beach and put his feet in the ocean. Could you be Isaac's forever home?

In Virginia, we have hundreds of children who are ready for foster to adoption. In other words, these children are ready to find their permanent and loving forever families.

Our kids are all ages and races, they were put in foster care due to no fault of their own. To learn more and becoming a foster to adoption parent(s) click here.
