Mar. 23: Jeremiah
Jeremiah is bright and academically on target, and likes to laugh. Initially raised in the country, he loves being outdoors, riding his bike and interacting with animals, especially horses. He’s passionate about art and when given the choice, prefers doing art projects to playing sports, even though it means staying inside. He also loves collecting baseball cards.
Jeremiah will likely blossom as the only child in a two-parent home with a strong, consistent, father figure as a role model and a gentle, nurturing mother.
