Child in Need: Steve is looking for some hangout time

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

Steve is 7 and is looking forward to having a guy to hang out with. He likes school and enjoys reading books. At home he enjoys drawing and playing baseball.

When asked what he would like to do with his Kinship Partner mentor he said he wants to learn how to take care of pets and how to play “real” baseball and “real” soccer.

Steve describes himself as nice and kind. He wants to be a fireman when he grows up.

He lives with his mom and would like a Kinship Partner that would do fun things with him.
