Chance is a sweet and funny boy. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is very bright, talkative and outgoing. He loves to read but also enjoys playing outside where he can run around and be active. In the summer he loves to go to water parks or just swim in a backyard pool, but he is also happy just playing and running in his backyard or being inside playing video games. 

Chance is in 6th grade, and his teachers say he is inquisitive. His favorite subject is math.  He is a leader and does best with clear directives, structure and routine in his daily life, which also applies to his school setting. While he's not a fan of wearing them, he dons prescription glasses to treat a slight lazy eye.

Chance lives in a foster home setting where he has been for more than four years.  He has made great progress in this home setting. 

Ideally, Chance would like a two-parent home, pet-free, with at least one mom and where he would be the only child or much younger child by at least a few years.  He'll need guidance, love and firm boundaries.  There is an open adoption agreement set by the court stating that Chance's birth mom, who lives out of state, should receive letters and photos periodically throughout the years if it's in Chance's best interest.
