Meet 14-year-old London.

He’s a quiet kid who likes to read, watch movies and play with animals, especially dogs.

London also enjoys playing basketball, swimming and working to earn money.

He takes pride in his appearance and says if he had an extra $100, he’d buy a pair Nike Air Force sneakers!

London’s ideal family would have a laidback parenting style, while offering unconditional love and support.

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