Family Finder: Rigo in need of a family

Family Finder Wednesday Dec. 19

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - “From the first moment I met Rigo he sat in my lap and melted into me and I pretty much experienced love at first sight,” said Gina, Rigo’s Foster Mom.

Rigo is a sweetheart that loves to cuddle.

“Many nights at home are spent with him either cuddling in my lap or dad’s lap and he will hold your hand until you make him let go,” said Gina.

Rigo loves what your typical 10 year old loves to do.

“His most amazing smiles come from sitting in the shopping cart in Costco. He likes the hustle and bustle of being around other kids. He likes the noises the stimulations,” Gina said.

This sweet boy needs a family to really embrace his amazing personality.

“Rigo doesn’t see himself with any limitations. He needs a family that sees him through the same lens,” said Gina.

Gina says she hopes to see him with a family that will take him on many adventures he deserves to go on.

Tiffany with Foster Arizona said, “Rigo would do best in a two parent household where there is a dedicated caregiver that can spend extra time that he needs to make sure that his needs are met.”

He does great with kids and other siblings.

“He needs a family that is willing to coordinate ancillary services for him and make sure everything is set up to help him be everything he wants to be,” said Tiffany.

“Rigo should come with a warning label. If you open up your heart up to him, you will fall in love with him instantly. I did,” said Gina.
