Ronnell is a 16 year-old boy who describes himself as “funny, silly, and approachable.” He is also very resilient and very outgoing and friendly. He enjoys trying new things and having new experiences. He has a wide variety of interests, including:
• Sports - Football, Basketball, Lacrosse, Karate, Boxing, BMX
• Fashion, Sneakers, Cosmetology
• Gaming and Programming
• Pets – Dogs and Ferrets
• Construction and building things
Ronnell’s goals are to find a “forever family” and get out of the foster care system. His ideal family would be a family that includes a mother, father, and dogs. He would prefer to live in a suburban setting, and would like to be the youngest child in the home. He would also prefer to have his own room. His adoptive family would likely need ongoing support to ensure a successful transition from foster care and to continue to process his past in a healthy way.
Sweet Buffalo had the great pleasure of meeting Ronnell on the Sweet Buffalo segment on News 4 Buffalo where he shared his story and his wish for a family to adopt him. We are grateful to the Heart Gallery of WNY for all they do to help children in foster care. Ronnell is an amazing young man who deserves a family to call his own.
