We never know when the perfect match will occur. We are continually enrolling kids and adults in our program. And then,almost like magic, it becomes apparent that the adult we just interviewed is the perfect partner for one of the kids who have been waiting.
We are happy to say that we have just enrolled a young man in the program who will be a delightful partner. Nate is a motivated student and loves fourth grade. He has an expansive vocabulary and his favorite subject is math. Nate is tender hearted and has a good self-image. He tends to be hard on himself, though, and may get discouraged easily. His parents have recently separated and are in the process of divorcing. Even while with the family dad was extremely busy so Nate would benefit from having a good, consistent, male role-model.
Nate has a wide variety of interests. He enjoys everything from cooking, to snowmobiling, playing and watching sports to dancing. Yes, dancing! Nate is an incredible tap-dancer! The ideal adult partner for him would be someone who shares Nate's interests, is supportive of his love of dancing, and would be willing to introduce Nate to new opportunities.
Nate lives in south Brainerd with his mom and his younger sister. He sees his dad but not always on a consistent basis. When asked why he would like to have an adult partner, Nate stated, Because I don't get to hang out with dad and I would like to learn what a father and son would do.
If you've been thinking about becoming an adult partner but weren't sure if you could deal with some of the issues affecting our kids, take a chance on Nate. As stated previously, he's a great kid, has many interests and is very motivated to be matched with his own adult friend. Please give us a call to get more information about Nate or any of the other kids on our waiting list.
