A pair of shoes for Shawn who loves to play hard!

Posted Jan 11, 2017
Shawn is a rough and tumbley boy that wishes for a new pair of sneakers to wear to school. His left leg turns inward and because of this he need shoes more often than most kids because they wear out quickly. He hopes to wear these new shoes to school.

Shawn is 12 years old and lives in Wilkesboro, NC

Shawn is a great kid who struggles with the lasting effects of abuse and neglect. He has many special needs and requires a high level of care and attention. He likes being part of the family and likes to work on things and fix them. Shawn is a loving little guy who likes to eat, sleep, and listen to music. His favorite food is Chick-fil-A. Shawn loves helping people and wants to be a teacher, someday.
