Wednesday's Child: August
He may keep a low profile at first, but before you know it, he is the center of attention, making those around him laugh with his keen sense of humor.
He is much more than a comedian though; he is a sensitive guy who is described as compassionate, outgoing, friendly, creative, perceptive and insightful.
August enjoys a variety of activities, like drawing, building with LEGOs, coloring, dancing, singing and basketball. He also relishes time spent with his "Big Brother". Church and Bible class are important to him.
We met August at Sonshine Dance Academy, where he was taking part in his first dance lesson and it didn't take long for him to pick up the dance moves.
August is in the fifth grade and his favorite class is science because he like discovering and learning about minerals, fossils and rocks. He's also a big fan of dogs and would love to have a golden retriever someday.
The caseworker prefers a home with both a mother and a father for this child. However, all family types will be considered. He has siblings with whom he remains in contact. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.
