Sixteen-year-old Donnie has a gift for the guitar. He taught himself how to play four years ago and at his 25 News “Forever Families” filming in Waco he was given a new electric guitar by the non-profit, Partnerships for Children. Donnie even got the opportunity to put his new guitar to good use when he sat down with Texas musician Donna Beckham for a jam session.
Donnie loves Classic Rock and all things Jimi Hendrix. He talked about songwriting and Donna told him to keep going for it. The world needs the light that shines bright inside of him. Donnie also wants to attend Texas A&M University and eventually become a Marine.
“I just want to serve my country,” he told me.
Donnie is smart and sweet and hopeful that he will find a forever family that will allow him to pursue his passions. His adoptive family should also be willing to facilitate continued contact with biological family members who have been supportive of him during his time in care.
He is easy-going and will be a blessing to the family who welcomes him home. Donnie is featured in The Heart Gallery of Central Texas. Go to www.kxxv.com and click on the “Forever Families” tab to learn about adopting Donnie.
