Erick loves playing video games as that is a time for him to speak to his friends in his native language to him. He is wonderful with the family's pets and enjoys caring for them, he loves music, and watching the foster mom cook different things and participating when he is comfortable! Erick has had a very traumatic childhood that has led him to the foster home that he is at currently. Erick was brought over to the states when he was younger, and due to the abuse he received was put into foster care. Erick has been into previous foster homes, but has never stayed for a long period of time. His current foster placement is one of his longest. While in his foster home, Erick has begun to feel comfortable around his foster parents, consultant, school personal and now his therapist. While previously Erick would never have spoken about his history or his emotions, Erick now is coming to understand he is loved and cared for.
