Jake Hofmann is a 2019 Star of Adoption! Jake is 14 years old and lives in Silver Spring, Maryland. He was born in Guatemala, and came home to live with his forever family when he was a baby. He attends Northwood High School as a freshman. Jake loves Lacrosse and plays it at his high school. When he is not playing lacrosse, he enjoys playing soccer, swimming, hanging out with friends, and eating pizza. Jake was inspired to tell his story because he wanted other kids who were adopted and felt sad or badly about it to understand that they are not alone.
