Devin is an active 14-year-old who enjoys games and dreams of one day joining the military or becoming a police officer.

Devin explained, "They're going out there making the world a better place. Police officers keep the city safe, keep the people safe from issues and bad stuff."

He's also a big fan of the Christmas season; Devin said, "I like Christmas because you can enjoy being with your family, with your friends. The point of Christmas is not just the presents, it's your family too. The family is the biggest thing that people really want, the adults in your family really want you to know, they care about you."

Devin's looking for a family that can care for him and guide him to his bright future.
