BILLINGS — This month's edition of A Waiting Child features Sean, who just marked his 15th birthday.

In his free time, he sketches, goes outside and plays basketball.

He really likes science, particularly chemistry, and figuring out how things work.

"I like making things and fixing things," Sean said.

He's not afraid of hard work and even has a few prospective career aspirations.

Sean enjoys reading, and pretty much anything outdoors.

"I'm athletic -- and artistic," Sean said.

He loves animals, and he’s got a pretty solid three point shot.

And the first thing he wanted to do when the sun popped out again, "I really just want to go swimming again," Sean said, "Looking forward to being able to go outside and going swimming and going to a home.
