Meet 10-year-old Kelsy.

He’s is a good-natured kid who cares a lot about animals and especially likes taking trips to the zoo.

Kelsy also enjoys playing video games, attending church and using his imagination building stuff with Legos.

He’s hoping to find an active, energetic family who would be committed to helping him keep contact with his younger sister.

If you think you could be Kelsy’s forever family, or for another Texas child, you can call 325-315-8247 or log on to adoptchildren.org for more information.
