Meet Evan

Having a positive outlook on life is something that should be cherished – a quality that doesn’t come easily to everyone. His compassionate and selfless heart radiates warmth. He is, as people who know him can attest, an all-around awesome kid who is full of smiles.

Evan is affectionate and supportive, always quick to give a big hug and help out around the house. He’s adaptable – he enjoys everything from helping in the kitchen to working outside on the lawn and learning about tools. He has a silly laugh and a charming smile to match his goofy personality.

On his long list of favorite things to do, playing outdoors is up at the top. Evan appreciates being outside, and would really like to expand his mind and try new things. Camping is something Evan has enjoyed in the past, but would love for his future adoptive family to participate with him to make the experience that much more entertaining. Evan also has a blast fishing and riding his bike.

Evan has so much fun riding his bike, jumping on the trampoline, and maneuvering his dump trucks and cars. Evan tends to move quickly from one activity to another, so he may go from looking at books to entertaining himself with Angry Birds, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on his tablet.

"An affectionate and helpful boy, Evan loves to give hugs and help around the house. He has a lovable silly laugh."

Currently in 7th grade, Evan is doing his best to navigate the world of virtual learning. Typically, Evan enjoys and does well with one-on-one attention in the classroom and is always quick to “be a helper.” An adoptive family who prioritizes and takes education seriously would be a great benefit to Evan’s educational future.

An adoptive family that can provide Evan with positive supervision and a lifelong loving, supportive environment will help this great kid reach his potential.

Evan’s team believes he would do best in an adoptive home with parent(s) that are committed to spending a lot of quality time with him as he continues to make progress learning about the world around him. Any family configuration will benefit from having that solid support system around them, augmented by other family, friends, and community resources to best care for Evan. Evan loves one-on-one attention, but would be happy with supportive older kids in the home. (He’s quite social!)

Evan is a sincere, silly kid with a big heart who needs a patient, permanent family. If you can see Evan in your family, please reach out to us! We’re excited to find him the adoptive family he deserves.
