Billy would like to be a better swimmer


Here is a child from the Brainerd area who is waiting for a Kinship Partner.

Billy is a 9 year old who is glad spring is here as he enjoys being outdoors. He likes bike riding, throwing a football, fishing, and shooting bow and arrows.

He says he can swim but would like to learn to be a better swimmer.

He describes himself as funny, fast, happy, nice, and active. He would like to be a football player, firefighter or a police officer when he grows up.
