Kinship partners

Bobby is a six-year old from Brainerd who has been waiting for a mentor for almost a year. 

Bobby is an outgoing, fun-loving youngster.  He enjoys all kinds of activities. . . dancing, singing, bike riding, snow sledding, fishing, swimming, sports and yard games to name a few.  One of his favorite hangouts is the school yard near his home.  He loves climbing on the monkey bars and reaching for the sky on the swings.
