BUTTE - This month's A Waiting Child is a 17-year-old from Butte who's always up for a good game -- a ?very active Kane Smith.
If you’re up for some racket ball or shooting some hoops then Smith is game.
"I love sports, any kind of sports, I’ll watch them. Except for soccer and golf. I love basketball, love football, pretty much anything," Smith said.
He's a 17-year-old Montana native who not only loves sports but would like to work as a veterinarian one day.
"Animals are pretty much my thing. I don’t like cats because they’re hard to work with," Smith said. "They’re really hard to work with because they won’t sit still.
Smith also told MTN News that says he’s pretty athletic, "well, I just like being active, it’s fun to be around people that are active it’s just hard for me to actually sit down."
Smith would do well with parents who also like to get out and move.
"Someone that is patient and that is active, that’s really important, because he loves being outside doing stuff, sports just always on the move," Smith's caretaker Katie Lamach said.
She added that he gets along with other kids very well, "he has a good heart, he’s just very warm kind person."
