He's a 12-year-old with some natural gymnastic skill! And Jauan showed it off at Kids' World Gymnastics. "I like to flip. I like to have a talent that no one else has."
Jauan has lived in foster care most of his young life. And because of that experience, he really wants to be a therapist when he grows up. "I want to work with kids. I could feel their pain with what they've been through."
This pre-teen likes to be active. Jauan likes basketball and just about any sport. He's really proud of the way he dresses too! And this fun-loving kid also loves animals and hopes his forever family has a monkey .. he can always ask!
But what would make Jauan the happiest is a forever family. "Sometimes I think in my head about how come Sheldon gets to have a forever family and I don't. I want my forever family to treat me nice, like their own son. I wish everyone was good and people just treat each other the way they are supposed to be treated."
Jauan also has a little wish. He would like to take gymnastics classes.
If you would like to learn more about becoming part of Jauan's life or granting his little wish, please call the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition at 1-800-FOSTER3.
