Each month, Foster Adopt Minnesota partners with local news and print media to feature a Minnesota child or sibling group in need of an adoptive family.  These partnerships are invaluable in helping to find homes for Minnesota children and raising awareness about the need for adoptive families in all Minnesota communities.  Below are our current newspapers partners and their most recent waiting child feature.

Star Tribune

This Month's Press Publication Featured Child

Larry, 14

Lawrence (Larry) is a very insightful kid that is extremely likeable. His wittiness, sarcasm, and humor make him a lot of fun to be around. Some of Larry’s favorite things include Transformers, spicy buffalo wings, the Green Bay Packers, the show Friends, and cheesecake! Larry also enjoys being in the water and being around dogs.

If Larry could plan a day of fun, he would want to go to the movie theater. He said “It Is not about the movie. It is more of just the experience of going to the theater”. He would order popcorn and Orange Fanta. If he could go to any concert, he would want to see Fetty Wap or Harry Styles. If he could only eat one fast food restaurant for the rest of his life, he would pick Red Lobster. Larry would want to go to New York City to shop and visit all the touristy areas such as the Twin Towers memorial, the Statue of Liberty, and the Empire State Building. He also would want to check to see if they have any Friends memorabilia that he could purchase.

According to Larry, he would like to join a family that is not going to put pressure on him, a family that is not going to try and change who he is, a family that is going to take him to try new foods, and someone that will support his relationships with his siblings and birth relatives that live out of state.

Following adoption, Larry will need to maintain contact with his siblings.

Only Minnesota families are being considered at this time.
