Waiting for a mentor: Boy missing family seeks fishing buddy

Change can be difficult, especially when you have to leave people and places you love.

Carter is a 10-year-old boy who moved to the Brainerd area this year. The transition has been difficult for him, mainly because he had to leave his grandpa and uncle who he loves very much.

Carter does well in school, he's athletic and likes four-wheeling and fishing. He would like a potential mentor to know he is happy, active and he cares about others, but he really misses his family.

Carter used to spend a lot of time on the lake fishing with his grandpa and uncle. His mom would like nothing more than for someone to be able to step in to help mend the gap moving has made.

Are you a man who has been feeling pulled to make a difference but have not been sure how? For Carter, just being yourself and spending time with him would make all the difference.

With offices in Brainerd, Pequot Lakes, Crosby, and Staples, Kinship Partners serves area families by providing positive role models to youths from the ages of 5 to 14. Mentors can be individuals, couples or families.
