SAN DIEGO, Calif. (KSWB) – Born in San Francisco and put up for adoption at the age of three – Griffin was placed in the foster care of Charles and Lisa Harris, along with their two biological sons.

“I wanted to be treated like a real son.  Their sons got spanked and I didn’t,” said Griffin.

Two weeks later – and two months before he was to be adopted – he met with social workers who packed his things, put him in a car and took him away – without ever having the chance to say goodbye to the family he spent 10 years with.

For the next three years, Griffin bounced from foster home to foster home – more than a dozen of them – never fitting in and never wanting to.

About six years ago, Lisa Harris found Griffin through social media and he called her.

He and his foster mother met up and after years of frequent visits, Griffin told her he still wanted to be adopted and filed the paperwork.

Griffin will be legally adopted by his former foster mother Friday, March 15 at San Diego Juvenile Court.
