Gordon from Pennsylvania
?I don't know how to start this?so, my name's Gordon. I'm a sports fanatic and an animal lover and most importantly, I LOVE to be active. I'm not the type of guy that sits around waiting for adventure to fall in my lap; no, I like to go out and find it myself. Once, I was at a foster home, they had one hundred and seventy acres of land, and I walked the entire perimeter all in one day. I took a backpack of water bottles and a bunch of snacks, checked in with the foster parents, and then I set out. On my journey, I found a random four-wheeler and after I finished my adventure, I returned to the four-wheeler and kept it for myself. Yeah?it had a flat tire. Another adventure I had involved going fishing and I hooked a MONSTER and it began pulling me in my boat. The oar fell into the water and I had to use my hands to row the boat. It snapped my line so I did not catch it?but it had to be BIG! See, I'm a pretty adventurous guy! For a family, I'd like an active family who will still allow me to sleep in on Saturdays and Sundays. I would like a mom and a dad who will go on adventures with me and share the fun. Siblings are okay?just not too many. Like, five kids is too many?I will not survive. I would prefer the country or a rural area. I'm cool with a religious family?just not too religious. I consider myself a Christian, but I don't go to church?I just read my Bible. A family who can fix things is cool too because I have a broken watch that needs fixed. Seriously. I am cool with all pets just not poodles. A family who hunts and fishes would be perfect! Speaking of perfect, a perfect day with a family would be spent with them all day outside (after I'm done sleeping in) and we'd make tree houses, forts, and other stuff out of wood, have a cookout and a bonfire later. Now that's what I'd call a PERFECT day! Some more about me? I like to eat! I enjoy a good plate of beef stroganoff or a cheesy slice of pepperoni pizza. I don't care for veggies except for corn and raw broccoli. Keep those Brussel sprouts away?keep them away. My favorite dessert is dirt cake. It became my favorite at my sister's birthday party. I like to have snowball fights and ice cream! In school, I like math and gym class...I don't like English, reading, science, health, and US history, pretty much everything else other than lunch. I do my best work in lunch. I'm hilarious too! My grades are usually A's and B's?but that's when I try really hard. I have my own computer and I enjoy watching videos. My favorite show is probably ?BattleBots,? and my music of choice is hip-hop and R&B. In the future, I want to be a United States Marine. One thing that I want families to know is that I like to take it slow. I don't like to be rushed into making any kinds of decisions about things like adoption or other stuff. I like to get to know people and develop a trusting relationship with them before I let anyone into my world. I also am not a big fan of being hugged or squeezed by people I don't know?that's just who I am. Get to know me first and then we're cool. So, if you're out there and you are reading this and are looking for an adventure, I'm your guy!? Parental rights have been terminated for Gordon.
