He dreams of playing in the NFL someday and he added he is really good at making touchdowns. He would also like to improve his fishing techniques and would like to try new things.

February is drawing to a close and has been a month of red hearts and an occasional hint that spring will arrive. For some of our waiting kids it is a reminder of how long winter has been dragging on and just how long they have been waiting for a mentor. Maybe March will be the month Caleb is matched with a mentor and the footballs will be flying and for him it will be a real touchdown.
