Lawrence, "Larry," 12, is thoughtful and caring. He is known for his great sense of humor and witty jokes. Larry enjoys football, playing outside, building with LEGOS, drawing, basketball and science. He likes hanging out with friends and listening to music, especially his favorite artist, Harry Styles.

Larry loves eating good food and trying new meals. Some of his favorites are chicken wings, pizza, ribs, spaghetti and meatballs. Larry is interested in geography and skyscrapers, and dreams of seeing the tallest skyscrapers in the world someday. He hopes to find a forever family that enjoys traveling and visiting new places together, whether it is around Minnesota or somewhere far away.

Larry needs a patient, two-parent family who can give him consistent structure, support and the one-on-one attention he deserves. He would do best as the youngest or only child in the home.

Following adoption, Larry would need to maintain contact with his siblings. Only Minnesota families are being considered at this time.
