Dajuan is a sports-loving 16-year-old who loves basketball, soccer, and hanging out with his friends. When he’s spending time on his own, he enjoys drawing and playing video games. Although Dajuan can be a bit shy when meeting new people, once he gets to know someone and builds trust, he loves to joke around and be silly.
While Dajuan is still unsure of what his future might hold, he is looking forward to finding his forever family. His ideal future family enjoys being active and playing and watching sports. He would also love to join a family with a dog.
Dajuan is a funny, kind, and thoughtful kid. He would be a great addition to a family because he likes to build relationships and share his interests with others. -Sara Jeske, Child Specific Recruiter
A forever family for Dajuan means a lifetime of love, patience, and support. He has struggled with some subjects in school so it will be important for his parents to provide the tools he needs to succeed along with plenty of encouragement and support. Dajuan is also very impressionable so it will be important to monitor his friendships and other relationships. Dajuan would thrive with parents who can help guide him towards positive decision-making skills and have open and non-judgmental conversations that will help him navigate this important time in his late teens and early adulthood.
As a young black man, Dajuan needs a family who will help keep him connected to people of color in the community. Finding service providers of the same race will also be beneficial to help him stay rooted in and connected to his racial and cultural identity.
“Dajuan is a funny, kind, and thoughtful kid,” says his Child Specific Recruiter, Sara. “He would be a great addition to a family because he likes to build relationships and share his interests with others.”
