OKLAHOMA CITY - A teenager who loves spending time in the country is now looking for a family.

Robert, who goes by R.C., went in to DHS custody when he was 11-years-old.

At 15, he is turning out to be a jokester with a sweet tooth.

He says he loves to read, watch action movies and spend time in the country.

"Fishing, hunting, anything outdoors," R.C. said.

One day, he says he hopes to have a job in the great outdoors and even start his own animal rescue.

"Snakes, since I like snakes, turtles and all of that...if people don't like those in their ponds and stuff like that, I can go get them out and then relocated them," he said. "I'm going to try starting it. That's why I'm working on buying a Ranger."

His dream family would include brothers and sisters and a place in the country.

"I've been trying for a home that has littler siblings," he said.

His caseworkers say he would be a delight for any home, and he would enjoy a bit more freedom.

If you're interested in adopting R.C. or learning more about the adoption process, DHS would love to hear from you.

Call them at (405)-767-2955.
