Preston has a heart of gold and a passion for nature, which is why we met up at hawk mountain in carbon county, it’s the simple things in life like being outside that make him happy.
“When I’m outside I feel calmer and more at peace than when I’m inside,” said Preston.
Preston looks on the brighter side of life and wants a forever family to enjoy that optimism with him.
“I like an interactive family that they go outside, play games, and have fun. Mostly that, but also I would like it if they love me and all that, and that they care about me,” said Preston.
He has a lot of love to give in return. He’s looking for a parent who will help him create positive memories.
