Meet Dakota

Dakota is an outgoing young man who is full of energy. He really enjoys interacting with adults, and actively participates in visits with his caseworker, his adoption specialist, and his CASA worker.

Dakota enjoys being outdoors, however, he also loves indoor activities, as well, such as building with Legos and reading. He enjoys the ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ books, Anime, and Big Nate books. He enjoys playing board games such as ‘Sorry’, ‘Clue’ and ‘Trouble.’ Dakota likes following sports, and especially likes Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors. He has an interest in arts and crafts and enjoys coloring because it is a calming activity for him.

Dakota will continue to need a lot of educational support in the classroom, although he has seen a significant improvement in this area. He needs a forever family that can help him achieve academic success.

Dakota’s ideal family would live in Kentucky (or a surrounding state) where he can maintain some type of contact with one of his biological brothers.
