James was living with his mother before he came into care. His father left before he was born. His mother's addiction to drugs caused authorities to take James from his home and place him in foster care. His mother was also known for her erratic behavior and angry outbursts with neighbors, professionals and in public.
Despite what he has experienced, James is a very positive little boy. He is making great grades in school and loves playing sports.
