Running is My Passion — On Adopting Nevin

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman March 07, 2015

Nevin’s loving and talented dad created this video, “Running Is My Passion.”

His sweet father says of Nevin, “He has been participating in AAU track and loves running! My wife and I adopted Nevin and his sister through foster care and have watched him flourish with the support of our family and friends. There are many children just like Nevin, that people assume because they are in foster care, they are problem children.”

Nevin’s family would tell you that their great joy comes from family. They would tell you that adopting through foster care has been a huge blessing in their lives, and they would encourage any who are entertaining the idea of being foster parents or adopting through foster care to follow through.
