Jumping in Puddles

While I would love to talk to you about Isaac, there is someone who could do it better.  Isaac.  So I am going to let him speak for himself…

When asked about his likes, Isaac shares: “I like to play soccer, get wet when it’s raining…it’s very fun!  Jumping boots!  I like to play hide and seek, especially at night because I can hide better.  I also like to make jokes, to make people laugh.  I like to go to the bakery, to eat what we prepare.  I like the weaving workshop because we make beautiful things, like stuffed animals.  I like to listen to reggaeton.”

His thoughts on finding a family: “When I think of a family, I feel love, that I can share and be close to them, of brothers and a mother and father.”

And regarding his life goals: “When I grow up I want to be a doctor to help people who are injured or sick.  I would also like to be a police officer to eliminate the evil ones.  I also want to be a father and have a family of my own.”

This boy.  He is special.  He has had his fair share of injustices, but his resiliency allows him to still have hope.  Please consider giving Isaac a chance, and host him this summer!


Isaac is 10 1/2 years old, and is available to host (in MD, PA, NJ, IL, MO) or for outright adoption in any state through Madison Adoption Associates.  There is a $500 hosting grant available to the family that hosts him.  Email sarah@madisonadoption.org for more information.
