Some people like to take life slow, enjoying the little moments, savoring the indoors and reveling in relaxation. And some people are the opposite of that; energetic and lively, always ready to move, move, move. People who thrive on being busy and enjoy the stimulation of the outdoors and the general thrill of being active.
Collin is the latter, the “always busy” type. You will rarely see him sitting still, except when it comes to video games, naturally. Collin enjoys playing any and all sports. He likes to be outside, where his energetic spirit truly blooms. He loves to go fishing. He loves to swim. He’s passionate about caring for animals. He’s fascinated by planes. He absolutely loves music.
Collin's social worker shares her favorite things about Collin, some memories from their last trip, and her hopes for his future.
Collin loves to help others, which includes preparing family meals, which has spurred his interest in cooking. Helping out with meal prep and learning more about cooking is something Collin may want to explore in the future. He also enjoys helping out with the many farm animals at his current home. He’d love to keep learning about raising chickens and rabbits.
In school, Collin does his best work when he’s got a lot of great, motivating support. Having a good relationship with his teacher(s) is super helpful, as is having mentors available for his need. Learning how to navigate the social aspect of school doesn’t always come easy for Collin but again, with the right support and guidance, he’ll go far. The structure and support of an adoptive family will be so beneficial for his present and future.
Collin’s team is excited to hear from active families who will welcome Collin and his endless drive with open arms. A family who enjoys hiking, playing sports, and being outdoors would be awesome. Besides being active, Collin’s team hopes to hear from experienced, patient, nurturing households – a home with two moms would be really great! He’ll likely do best as an only child or as the youngest of older siblings. He’s also close with a couple of his relatives and it is extremely important to him to maintain those relationships. An adoptive family’s support and patience during transitional periods and with school will be super beneficial for Collin.
