Glenn - 8/8/12

Posted: Updated:


He's been fortunate enough to be adopted once. But due to some unfortunate events -- Glenn needs a forever family again.

He enjoyed a day of play at Whitaker Center. This teen ,who has special needs, has been through a lot.

"Actually it's kind of sad," said Glenn's adoption worker Shari Menichello. "He came from an adoptive family and his adoptive mom passed away. That's how he became part of the foster care system again."

The Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network, along with Menichello, are looking for a family that is willing to go the distance.

"I think we need to find a family that would be willing to take him into their family for long term because he is not going to be able to live on his own. Even when he is an adult he is always going to need some help," she said.

Glenn has a few relatives he would like to stay in touch with once he is adopted: a sister and step dad.

"Every couple months they take him out to dinner, talk with him and keep in touch," said Menichello, "so they really want a family who will love him and take care of him to because they know they are not able to."

Glenn loves animals and his adoption worker loves the teen's wonderful qualities.

"I love his whole personality. He is very funny, playful, he loves to tell knock, knock jokes and play at the playground."
