Brendon’s worker calls him an “extremely friendly and charismatic” young man who has a great sense of humor and a strong work ethic.
Brendon wants to be a welder or mechanic when he grows up. The 16-year-old hopes to be adopted before he turns 18.
On any given day, you might find Brendon in a barn brushing down his horse “Skeeter.”
“One thing I love about my horse is he’s friendly. He knows when I’m down,” said Brendon, a 16-year-old foster child who’s a junior in high school.
Brendon helps take care of “Skeeter” and presents him in area equestrian shows.
“I’m looking for a family…a family that lives out in the country,” he the foster child.
He’s been waiting to be adopted since April of 2017.
“I like to play baseball, I like to hike, ride bikes, go hunting and fishing,” he said.
When he opens up, he can be quite talkative.
“I’m very trustworthy with a lot of stuff,” he added.
When he grows up, he’d like to be an auto mechanic or a welder.
“He catches on quickly to things he’s shown such as working on cars and woodshop,” said his worker.
He’d also like to do more traveling in the future. Piling into a family car for a trip sounds like fun to him.
“I want some siblings. I don’t want to feel like an only child,” he explained.
“I’m looking for a loving couple that would take care of me until I turn 18 until I can get my life going, and actually have a family before I turn 18,” he said softly.
