PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- You can call him Chef Eric. He loves the heat of the kitchen.

"[I like making] pork chops, homemade pizza, pasta," Eric said. "I know how to cook clams, eel and squid."

But, for this 19-year-old, it's not just about the food.

"It really wouldn't even matter about the meal," Eric explained. "It would be like just sitting down, conversating 'oh, how was your day? How's it going? What happened?' Telling a few jokes here and there and just having fun."

When he's not in front of the stove, he likes to draw and do extreme sports.

But Eric still hasn't given up hope of finding a forever family with whom he can sit around a table and share a meal.

"It would be comforting," he admitted, "like all my worries in the world would just fade away."
