13 years old
Time Awaiting Adoption: 1 year
James describes himself as observant, full of energy, and a hard worker. He is outgoing
and friendly. He enjoys sports-football, basketball, baseball, kickball, and swimming. He
also likes to do puzzles and play ping-pong and pool. He does not consider himself a
picky eater and likes to try new foods. When he grows up, he would like to be a chemical
engineer or a chef. He wants a career that pays well but is also challenging and involves
travel to other parts of the world. To James, a family is a place to call a forever home
where he is loved and accepted. He would like a Christian family that likes to do things
together. James is an animal lover, so if his future family has pets or lives on a farm that
would be an added bonus.
My name is James and I’m 13. What I like to do in my spare time is to play games with my family, maybe even take a break, relax. I do go to church.
I like football. The reason why I like Alabama (favorite team) and it was my favorite. Maybe be a quarterback or a run-off position.
I like to read if its good. It’s like, you can’t judge a book by its cover. This book I read, it sounds boring, but I read it anyway and it turned out pretty good. If I could go anywhere in the world, I would go anywhere that don’t include Mississippi. No, I love Mississippi it’s just that I like to go in a different place.
I love to fish actually I love to fish. I never ate a fish I caught. The reason I want to get adopted is because… I’m not sure, I just want to stay in one place instead of moving around. To know the same people, and not move again.
My ideal family… loving, um, care about me, if it’s a hard time be able to just help me out by being together, a unit. I don’t ask too much of a family just that they love me.
