Bobby has been in foster care for almost five years.

He is just one of more than hundreds around the state who are hoping and praying to find a permanent family.

He's polite, caring, and a very happy kid.

Bobby, like most 9-year-old boys, loves video games.

"It's like a little game that you're like able to use with your DS," Bobby said. "You're able to use your Pokémon to throw him out and it will be able to have a little battle."

A birthday trip to Toys "R" Us is an incredible treat.

"There's little remote control dragons. My favorite, the hideous Zippleback," he said.

Bobby says he also likes bowling and making arts and crafts.

"Well, I like to make my favorite thing, which is making little Tron suits. I've made like 15 of them for all of the kids," he said.

When he mentions "all of the kids," he's likely thinking of the 15 other children he currently lives with at a group home.

"Eventually I'll buy the shoes for the Trons," Bobby said.

Also on his "wish list"....

"I'm trying to find a sister and a brother," he told KFOR.

Bobby is hoping to find an adoptive family - a mom and dad to call his own.

"I'm trying to look for a mother and a father in my family. That's pretty much all," he said.

It's a dream he's thought about a lot.

He's hoping to live in a rural area and attend a small school.

"My favorite subject is math," he said.

Bobby says he likes math because it "helps you to be smarter."

"My favorite part about math is subtraction."

Right now, Bobby is rolling with what life has to offer him and dreaming of what tomorrow might bring.

He’s a curious kid with a giving heart.
