Portrait of Shawn

  • Birth Year: 2006
  • Child ID: 218731
“Outgoing and loves to talk” might be the perfect way to describe Shawn! As an athletically inclined child, there is nothing better for him than trying out a new sport. From track and field to cross county or basketball, Shawn enjoys doing it all. He is up for the challenge of running in a 5k and appreciates heading to the gym to lift weights. Shawn loves rock music and will perk up to tell you his favorite band when asked. When he takes a break from all that running around, Shawn is sure to pick up a game controller to spend time playing video games. Older or same-aged peers get along smashingly with this teen, and he has worthwhile interactions with adults.

Teachers remark that this ninth grader is a true joy to have in class. He works hard and enjoys attending school.

Shawn would do best in a family where he is the youngest or only child in the home; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He will need to remain in contact with his siblings following placement. His worker states, “Shawn is excited to be adopted and often thinks about what kind of family he wants.” Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

For Missouri children, both home studied and non-home studied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only home studied families from other states should do so.
