Last August we ran a blog on Colin from our Sanmenxia foster care program. This young man is still on the shared list waiting to be adopted. We thought our readers might enjoy seeing how much Colin has grown since our last report. His foster family says that he is an excellent eater and will eat just about anything, which is easy to believe by looking at his photos and seeing how much he has grown since the summer. Colin’s missing teeth must not be slowing him down!
Colin is a typical active boy who loves playing outdoors. He does struggle with school and would truly benefit from having more educational options and support from an adoptive family. We’re hoping that a family will come forward for him sometime soon!
In “Colin And a Few Of His Favorite Things” we described some of the things Colins likes best. Like most eight-year-olds, that list changes frequently…so without further ado, here is Colin’s new list:
Favorite Holiday: Spring Festival (particularly his grandmother’s special dumplings)
Favorite Sport: Outdoor sports like football
Favorite Food: Fried Chicken
Favorite TV show: Children’s music programs
Favorite Family Member: Grandma!
Colin has always been close to his foster grandmother. It’s nice to see that even as he grows up a bit, some things never change!
We are sure that an adoptive family would also make Colin’s favorites list. Please help us spread the word about this young man so that he can have a permanent family of his own!
