Lance, born in 2013, is a big-hearted, loving and caring Caucasian boy who loves giving and receiving hugs, building things with LEGOs, coloring, playing board games like ‘Trouble’ and ‘Uno’, and watching movies. Sports-themed movies are his favorite. Lance also enjoys being outdoors, birdwatching, doing gymnastics, playing soccer and baseball, listening to worship music, singing in the church choir, and watching football, baseball and basketball games. His favorite teams are the North Carolina Tar Heels for basketball, and the Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys and Ohio State Buckeyes for football. At school, where he earns good grades and gets along well with the other kids, Lance enjoys learning about math. He looks forward to becoming a professional baseball player and being the fastest pitcher in the world when he grows up. Lance needs a loving and patient adoptive family who will give him the attention, affirmation, support, encouragement, structure and nurturing environment he needs to continue to thrive and reach his goals. His family will also need to support his desire to maintain his relationship with his foster family.
