A new bike for Shawn who loves being outside

Posted Oct 12, 2018
When Shawn came into care, his family was homeless. Their belongings were spread out among various friends and acquaintances. At one time, Shawn had a bicycle but no one can seem to locate it. He’s been asking for it, but his biological parents have been unsuccessful in finding it. Shawn loves technology, which can be both a good and a bad thing. The good weather is here and the school year will be coming to a close in a few short weeks. A bicycle would allow him to get outside with friends rather than playing inside with handheld games or watching television.

Shawn is 10 years old and lives in Charlotte, NC

Shawn is an intelligent, talkative, handsome young man. He and his sister came into foster care in 2017. Prior to placement, Shawn was not enrolled in school. Academically, he had never finished 2nd grade. As a result, he began this school year in the 3rd grade. He is excelling! He finished the 3rd quarter on the Honor Roll again! Shawn loves school and has made many friends.

"Hi Shawn, I know you made this wish many months ago but I hope that a new bicycle will be a nice holiday gift this year. Probably lots of snow where you live so you might have to wait until Spring for your first good test ride. Have fun and remember to always wear a helmet! -Leigh"
