Meet Robert

In my email, I often receive articles from adoption agencies, periodical emails from such agencies many of which I signed up for back when we were still looking for kids who’d be a good fit and every now and then emails featuring individual kids in need of a forever home. Two days ago this special delivery arrived.

Here’s a naturally curious and thoughtful kid, with an interest in nearly everything. Despite his rough start in life and the challenges he faces, as a result, Robert remains a hopeful 12-year-old. In fact, he’s so determined to find a forever family, he requested copies of his Heart Gallery photo so he could pass them out to nice people he meets. He’s open to any kind of parent and would benefit from a nurturing family patient with his shy and quiet demeanor. Please help Robert in his quest to find a family and share his Heart Gallery profile with your friends- and anyone nice you meet!

“I love building things.” says Robert.

Robert has a real talent for working with his hands. He takes pride in making things for the people he loves the most and thinks it would be cool to be a craftsman when he grows up. He’s a naturally curious and thoughtful kid, with an interest in nearly everything. Just like every boy his age, he loves playing outside too. Despite Robert’s rough start in life and the challenges he faces, as a result, Robert remains a hopeful 12-year-old.

Robert is open to any kind of parent and would benefit from a nurturing family who will be patient with his shy and quiet demeanor. Robert wants to succeed in all he does and hopes to find a forever family who will encourage him to do just that.

Did you catch that? In fact, he’s so determined to find a forever family, he requested copies of his Heart Gallery photo so he could pass them out to nice people he meets. I have a 13 and 12-year-old and I can’t imagine them passing out photos to nice people. If things were a bit different in our home life, we would totally inquire about this young man. It was God who put the desire to adopt in my heart. God who changed Hubby’s heart. God who brought our four into our lives. And while we think we are done, I always say it will have to be God to tell us to adopt again. I have felt the urge to add another child every now and then, but for the most part, we fell done, (overwhelmed to be more accurate). But I remain open to God’s will. Who knows?

For now, we are on hold. BUT how about you? Do you have room in your home and heart for this young man? Can you at least spread the word about Robert?
