A fun-loving 16-year-old boy who loves sports and dogs is Hamilton County Job and Family Services’ Waiting Child for the month of December.
Hamilton County spotlights some of the children available for adoption with monthly releases to local media.
“We’re looking at innovative ways of getting our children before the public so we can find them safe, loving homes,” said Moira Weir, director of the department. “Every child deserves a permanent home and we know there are hundreds of loving families throughout this community that would be willing to open up their doors and their hearts to our children.”
Brett is a sweet and social child who enjoys being around people and makes friends easily. He has an infectious sense of humor and you can often find him laughing and joking around.
He loves to play baseball, basketball, and football. In fact, he is an all-around active teen -- gym is his favorite class and he also loves being outdoors. Like all teens, he does play video games and is good with the computer and electronics. He enjoys listening to R&B music.
Brett is an avid animal lover and is especially drawn to dogs; his favorite is a pit bull. Brett would love to find a big, fun-loving family with lots of kids and pets.
Hamilton County currently has about 190 children available for adoption. The county’s Children’s Services Division often must take custody of children who are the victims of abuse or neglect and cannot be safely reunited with their families. Those interested in adopting can learn more or by calling (513) 632-6366 or e-mailing. Also, follow Hamilton County JFS Foster Care and Adoption recruitment on Facebook.
