Child in Need: Six-year-old looking for positive role model


Six-year-old looking for positive role model

All children have something special to be shared with the world and Bill is no exception.

Bill is a bright, active, funny, upbeat and heartwarming 6-year-old little boy who lives in Brainerd with his grandmother. He has no contact with his dad and very little with his mother. Bill’s ideal match would be a man who can spend time with and reinforce positive behavior through example.

Bill is athletic and enjoys soccer and playing catch with a baseball, but likes “all outdoor sports”. He places sports over video games “any day”. It’s no surprise that his favorite classes at school are gym and music. Bill is very interested in BMX biking, and is a self-proclaimed animal lover! This winter, he would like to learn how to ice fish and snowmobile.

Kinship Partners serves families in Crow Wing County, southern Cass County and the Staples/Motley area by providing positive role models to youth from the ages of 5 to 14. We have offices in Brainerd, Pequot Lakes, Crosby and Staples.
