Shy 10-year-old Oklahoma boy looking for a permanent home

A shy fourth grader from Oklahoma is turning to the public in hopes that someone will read his story and make him a part of their family.

Roger, 10, told KFOR that he loves doing math and likes architecture and engineering.

"On the trip up here, he talked about building skyscrapers. Devon Tower is like his favorite thing in the world right now. He wants to know how it was built,” Roger's adoption transition worker, Melissa Tiffie, told the local station.

"How they're so tall and how they don't fall," Roger said.

Roger also said he loves to spend time outdoors.

“Last year, I went fishing and caught seven to eight fish in one day,” Roger said.

He is hopeful that he'll be able to one day fish and hunt with a permanent family. However, at the moment, he is just interested in looking for a home where he can create fun memories.

"I want a home that can make me be able to do a lot of stuff. Like where I can have money to buy stuff and make stuff like LEGOS," Roger said.

Tiffie said Roger is also quite the inquisitive student and loves school.

“He is amazing at science and math at school. He is a straight-A student. Talking to his counselors and teachers, they will tell you he is never in trouble at school,” Tiffie said.

She said that Roger would do well in a home with older children and added that the 10-year-old already has two older brothers who have been adopted.

Now he's just hoping he's next.

"Because I want to be in a home where I can stay there," he said.
