SAN ANGELO, Texas — Meet 14-year-old Zander.

He’s a handsome boy with an amazing smile and a big loving heart.

Zander loves being outdoors and listening to music and movies which help stimulate his brain.

He does have special medical needs, requires a wheelchair and receives in-home education services.

Zander would be a great addition to a family that’s looking for unconditional love…and lots of cuddles and affection.

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