“Forever Family”: Miles

Forever Family

Meet 17-year-old Miles.

Miles is a talented young man with big goals who’s looking for a loving family to adopt and support him.

After finishing high school, he says he’d like to be a paramedic or a police officer because he likes to help others and wants to save lives.

He loves cooking, music, reading and relaxing outdoors. He’s currently writing a novel. And one of his favorite hobbies is fishing.

The ideal family for Miles would be able to provide unconditional love, structure and encouragement.

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