Forever Family: Calvin


Meet 14-year-old Calvin.

Calvin loves nature and spending most of his free time outdoors. He’s especially passionate about fishing and one time, he even hooked a 15-inch bass!

Calvin is also into sports like basketball and football – says the Dallas Cowboys are his favorite team.

He is described as respectful, calm and will always lend a helping hand when cooking meals in the kitchen.

Calvin would thrive in a family that could provide unconditional love and a structured environment, since he thrives on routine.

If you think you could be Calvin’s forever family, or for another Texas child, you can call toll free 800-233-3405 or log on to for more information.
