New shoes for Kiean who is thrilled to be graduating soon

Posted Nov 16, 2018
Kiean is about to graduate high school in January and needs some new shoes for his career after school. He is super excited to be done and wants to celebrate!

Kiean is 17 years old and lives in Salem, OR

Kiean is the middle sibling between his younger sister and older brother. They have been in care for just around 4 years. Recently they have been removed from their foster home that they have shared for 2 and a half years and have been split up among different homes. With this move each sibling is having to not only adjust to a new home and family but also adjust to not being together every day. Kiean is fairly quite although when he gets with his friends and siblings he is a spunky young man. Who loves to tease his siblings. He enjoys working with his hands building and taking apart electronics and engines. He has learned much from his previous foster dad and son who work in mechanics. Kiean hopes to one day work as a mechanic.
