This 15-year-old is a real natural with animals. Brandon's favorites are the reptiles, especially snakes. He is very calm and comfortable around them. But this fun-loving young man also likes to play with the puppies.
Brandon wants to work with animals when he grows up. "He just has a real intiution about the animals and they seem to be very comfortable with Brandon as well," says Jeff Hartmann, Petland owner.
Brandon also has a really cute sense of humor. He sees life from a different perspective. "He's very smart and actually has a fantastic sense of humor as well. Brandon was cracking jokes the whole time," Hartmann shares.
This teenager has lived in foster care since he was just 5-years-old. That's along time to live without a permanent, loving family. But he continues to have a positive attitude.
Brandon also has a little wish. He would like a remote controlled boat.
If you would like to grant Brandon's little wish or learn how to become part of his life, please call the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition at 1-800-FOSTER3.
