( b a c k g r o u n d )

early years: grew up with a very close relationship with his parents, but when his parents were in a car crash when he was only seven, his mother died and his father blamed himself and came completely unhinged. cps promptly put him in the system when they realized his father was far too unstable to take care of a child. he always loved writing; he would write everything he felt, thought, experienced, and poetry was his outlet for when he felt he couldn't speak. when he was at his very first group home, he picked up the love of painting from another, older child. with his second foster family, he played football with his foster brothers in their backyard, in which he discovered a natural skill and love for the sport.
formative years: when he's not at school or football practice, he's hanging out with friends or working on a painting. right now, and through the book, he's growing a lot in his relationships, discovering things about himself and his past, and forming new, strong relationships with the people around him, including his foster parents.

birth parents: Anthony and Mia Hudson
how is their relationship?: no longer in touch, but as a child his relationship with them was rich with love and generosity. they were great, caring parents, and he was a well-mannered and mild-tempered boy. they did everything together and he never minded being a “momma's boy”.

foster parents (currently): Michael and Jennifer Cruz
how is their relationship? somewhere between getting to know each other and being used to each other. not new, but not old, either. still in the cautious stage of the beginning of a relationship, but on the verge of growing.

siblings: n/a

friendship(s): Liam Howell, Aiden Stark, Matthew Foley
how are their relationships? Liam is his best friend, they do everything together; their friendship has grown a lot but isn't nearly done. Aiden Stark and Matthew Foley aren't his best friends by any means, but out of all the guys on his football team, they're the ones Foster's closest to.
