Kenny comes from a really sad background, where both his parents are recovering drug addicts. Kenny has witnessed several drug raids, and he and his four siblings have moved from home to home in foster care. Kenny is a good child but struggles with connections and with part of anything because he is waiting for the proverbial shoe to drop and be moved again. He is afraid if he likes something too much, it will be taken away "like everything else in his life." He lives in non-relative foster care with a couple who are trying very hard to give him a forever home. However, things have been hard for the family.
