It has been a long road, but Shayne Methvin is creating a better life for himself.
He was born at Emanuel Hospital in Portland, began reading around 3 years old and attended Chapman Elementary School.
“Grade school was easy for me,” Shayne said. “I loved to write, and I loved to read.”
His mother was unable to care for Shayne and his two siblings, and he drifted through foster homes for six years.
Shayne said that as the first born, he had a special bond with his grandmother, Helen Marie.
