Here is a child from the Brainerd area who is waiting for a Kinship Partner mentor.
Eric is 8 and lives with his grandma and his younger sister. He likes soccer, Boy Scouts, and going to the park. When he grows up he wants to be a cop or be in the army.
He said he wants a Kinship mentor who is “nice, fun to be with, and active”. Since Eric has no contact with his father, his grandma wants him to have a guy figure in his life that will be a consistent presence and will be someone Eric can look up to.
