A new pair of Air Jordan's for Saveon who is doing very well in school

Posted Feb 22, 2018
Saveon has never experienced a stable living environment and seldom celebrated birthdays or holidays until coming into custody. In December of 2016 we purchased Saveon a pair of Air Jordan 12 shoes, for Christmas, with the help of One Simple Wish. Saveon's eyes lit up when he saw these shoes and reported to us that they were the best Christmas gift he had ever received. Saveon has been very protective of those shoes and has done a great job of taking care of them. However, he has out grown these shoes and we would love to be able to replace them very soon.

Saveon is 17 years old and lives in Charlotte, NC

Saveon came into DSS custody this year after his mother died of long term health and addiction issues. Saveon has had a rough life with little to no adult supervision but, he has a very infectious smile and a wonderful sense of humor. He loves sports especially baseball and is responding extremely well to a stable two parent foster home. He is intellectually disabled and yet he is performing at school and learning by leaps and bounds. Saveon would like to get a job after high school. He has expressed an interest in being a counselor for children or working in a rehab center.
