In this week's A Family for Me, we meet 9-year-old Evan. He's one of nearly 1,400 kids in Washington available for adoption.

Evan loves to learn and his grades show it. He likes to spend time outside and enjoys swimming and playing soccer.

Evan also enjoys one-on-one time with the important adults in his life. He would benefit from parents who are strong role models.
