“Belonging to me means getting respect and…just being who I am.”

Demarion is a fourteen year old who is often quiet and reserved, but who has a big smile. He is helpful and considerate in his foster home setting. He loves video and card games, going to the movies, Legos and socializing with people. Demarion enjoys walks in the woods and being outside, going out to eat, playing games – all things he’d like to do with a family. Demarion has a lot of favorite foods including steak, pizza, wings, fried chicken, pasta, cereal and cake. His birthday wish would be to go to an amusement park and then out to eat – especially to a restaurant with a buffet! He says his friends would say “I’m a good person. I’m smart. I’m funny.”

Demarion enjoys being around people who are authentic, nice and kind to others and true to themselves. He’d like to be a construction worker, building houses for other people, when he grows up. He says Legos have been good practice! Could you be the family this young man needs to help him have a bright future?
