Wednesday’s Child: 12-Year-Old Shane

Shane is a cheerful, sweet and playful twelve-year-old boy of Caucasian descent. He is very observant, and likes to feel included and a part of everything.

Shane is active and enjoys being outdoors, exploring and going on new adventures. He is very gentle and loves being with and caring for animals. He especially likes dogs who will run and play with him. Shane likes to play football and is always eager to participate in any group sports activity. He also enjoys building with Legos. Shane looks forward to going to school each day and does well in class.

Legally freed for adoption, Shane will do best in a two-parent family with either no children in the home or with children older than he is. An ideal family will be patient, and be able to provide him with reassurance, consistency and support.
