GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- In December, FOX 17 ran a story on Cody, a 14-year-old foster child searching for a forever home after 10 years in the foster system.

Cody spoke of his love for Alan Jackson, which somehow caught the country music star's attention.

Monday, FOX 17’s Ann Marie LaFlamme received a box for Cody from the Alan Jackson Fan Club filled with CD’s, shirts, a hat, guitar picks, a calendar, and much more, including a signed photo reading ‘To Cody, Your Friend, Alan Jackson.”

The best news is that there are potential adoptive families beginning the process of welcoming Cody into their home.  So, he'll soon have a loving family and picked up a country music superstar friend along the way.
