James – Age 14

James, 14 years old, prefers the simple things in life. He can spend hours just talking and laughing with someone when he’s comfortable with them. It doesn’t take much to make James smile. He’s happiest when spending quality time with loved ones.

James loves to keep things simple with a straightforward thumb war or staring contest when it’s time to play games! James is the type of person who is easily contented and enjoys getting to know new people. His easygoing personality makes him a joy to be around. James’ love of simplicity even extends to his food choices. He can be a selective eater and dislikes all forms of eggs! A fun day for James would probably be an easy day of bike riding, followed by a quality conversation in the sun.

His host family describes him as a fun-loving kid. “James is easygoing and never complains. He is quick to smile and loves playing games.” Chess is one of his best games, and his hosts say, “he’s an epically talented chess player.”

James dreams of finding a forever home where he can be loved and cared for in good times and bad.
