This week, Preston is the highlighted child. He is already 6 years old and is facing imminent institutionalization so we need to find him a family fast! I actually think of this little boy quite often. I can't wrap my mind around why he hasn't been rescued yet, he is so handome! He has bright blue eyes, sandy blonde hair and is described as being smart, active and social. As far as his medical conditions go, his profile says he has a hard condition but doesn't specify what type. He also has enlarged tonsils which are very common and enlarged adenoids.
