Today's Waiting Child Spotlight is on a child on the shared list, so contact Hand In Hand (Indiana@hihiadopt.org) to find the child's current availability. We see many children's files mentioning all kinds of activities and interests listed, but this boy takes the honors for variety. A top student, he "enjoys outdoor activities like basketball and soccer. He tries break-dancing, composing songs and playing guitar. He also engages in drawings and paintings during his spare time." This sounds like a boy who might be a fun-loving addition to the Hand In Hand summer hosting program!
