Hi, I'm Wesley. I'm interested in gymnastics, free running, and breakdancing. My needs are pretty simple--clothes, food and a phone. I'm good with children, pets, chores. I'd like a family that's caring, but not overprotective. I haven't had a lot of freedom and I look forward to that.

I'm Andre and I love going out in nature, to smell the breeze and enjoy what God gave me. I like to fish. I have my own tackle box and rod and reel. I also like to be outdoors doing just about anything--swimming, riding bikes, playing with the dogs, paint balling, cleaning the horse pens and riding them, too. I'd like to have a family that enjoys riding dirt bikes or 4-wheelers. I hope they enjoy camping and fishing and hunting.

As Isaiah approaches his 18th birthday, time is running out to find a supportive guardian family. That's especially sad because Isaiah is a great kid! He is so deserving of at least one adult to show him the ropes of adulthood. A steady guardian could help him choose wisely when it comes to important life choices. Most of all, you could provide that "welcome home" place every young adult needs, even when they are on their own.
