Meet Andrew

The kind of kid who makes friends easily and has a slew of interests, Andrew will be a great joy to the right adoptive family. He’s an artist – mostly a drawer, but he really has an appreciation for all artistic mediums. He really loves to make elaborate projects entirely out of cardboard. We’re not talking small projects either – he’s built a pop machine, a tiki bar complete with island masks, and some pretend shop booths. Truly a visionary!

When he isn’t working on an art project, Andrew is most likely reading. He’s a super strong reader who really enjoys discovering new stories. Additionally, Andrew is very proud of his collection of stuffed animals – it’s quite impressive. Andrew is also musically inclined and has really liked taking guitar lessons!

Being able to take an adventure in the great outdoors is something Andrew really loves and cherishes. Activities like hiking or camping or really anything outside make him so happy. Also please note that Andrew recently got a ghillie suit!

His favorite indoor activity is even an outdoor activity – the trampoline! Andrew loves going to trampoline activity centers where he can bounce the day away.

In school, Andrew seems to do his best work with a lot of encouragement and motivation. Having an adoptive family who can help keep him focused and motivated on his studies will help him meet even more of his academic goals, now and throughout the rest of his educational career.

Andrew is a really sweet soul. He has a quiet demeanor, or as his social worker says, “he’s a man of few words.” Like aforementioned, he makes friends easily, and is continually putting in the effort to become even more social.

Andrew’s team would like to hear from families who prioritize being active and who love the outdoors! They think Andrew will likely do best as the only child or the younger brother to much older siblings. He'd also love to be adopted by a family with animals!

If you can envision hiking and jumping around on trampolines with Andrew, reach out to us! We’re excited to find him the adoptive family he deserves.
