Expanding Our Family through Foster Care Adoption
All Adoption Stories
As Luck Would Have It
We have another remarkable child whose time is running out and is at risk of aging out. Just recently he was moved from a private orphanage to a public institution. Please consider helping us advocate by sharing. He is a kind, gentle soul and should not at fifteen years of age have to face the prospect of raising himself.
This child has no special need, except that he is fifteen years old and a boy. His medical records state that he is healthy. For those who have been around him he is described as shy, respectful and cooperative. His respectfulness carries across the generations as he gets along with both children and adults alike. He enjoys writing and reading and in general loves going to school. Away from school you'll find him kicking a soccer ball or playing any game with a ball, for that matter. In his down time he can be found on a computer, reading, listening to music or watching movies.
He dreams of becoming a soccer player but more than that he dreams of having a family.
