Shawn came into care in April 2017. He had many placements that ended up not being a good match for him. At the age of 15, he found his forever family. He was placed with his adoptive family in September 2019 and his adoption was finalized in May 2020, right after his 16th birthday.
Shawn’s adoptive family met him by chance in the community, loved him instantly and became licensed solely to take him in and make him a part of their family.
Shawn has absolutely flourished in his forever home. He owns a clothing business and works it full time. He also has his driver's license, his own car and excels in school – he completed his last semester with a 3.76 grade point average.
Shawn also recently became a big brother and loves his new role! Shawn and his new family are happy to be together and are looking forward to this next chapter.
