CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Meet Kegan, an eleven year old who loves to entertain himself and those around him with his creativity & personality.

As a ball of energy, he finds joy in staying active, whether its running or walking outside, as he loves being in the open air, as being outdoors brings him warmth and happiness.

Kegan has a great appetite, and like most children, he has a sweet tooth for candies and chips. One of his favorite foods is chicken nuggets.

An ideal family for Kegan would be one with parents who could be very attentive to him, and spend a lot of one -on-one time with him, helping him to develop his life skills as he grows up. But most importantly a family who will love him forever.

If you think you could be Kegan’s forever family or for another Texas child, please contact the department at 1-800-233-3405, for more information about adoption or visit here where you can also find a schedule of online public information meetings where you can learn more about the foster/adoption program.
