This Week's Wednesday's Child: Jacob

Jacob, age 13 (2/02), will win you over with his charming words and enthusiastic approach to life! A fan of country music, skateboards, bicycles, and video games, Jacob tackles the world at a full run. He likes pizza, macaroni and cheese, and grapes. He wasted no time saying that he is ready for a family that is not picky about what would be ideal for him. Jacob is social and all boy and a family that likes outside time and sports and taking walks would be a wonderful fit. On a recent trip to a farm, he went from petting cows and milking goats to riding a horse. A family for Jacob can expect lots of hugs, play time, and devotion. He would benefit from being an only child or the youngest child in a small family, he needs lot's of one on one attention and help staying on task. Jacob is very eager to be adopted and having his very own family.

The children's stories and photographs are artfully portrayed with hopes that families will be moved to consider adoption. If you are interested in hosting the Gallery at your place of worship, business or organization please e-mail us at and we will arrange for you to have it there.
