Danzell is an active, funny, yet quiet 14-year-old who is full of optimism—especially when it comes to thinking about what life with his forever family might be like.
His Child-Specific recruiter, Lyla, says, “Danzell is extremely optimistic! He loves talking about what his future family will be like and is always looking towards the future.” Danzell hopes his future family is “nice and has pets. A swimming pool would be nice too!”
Although Danzell and Lyla haven’t been able to spend time together lately, due to social distancing guidelines, they have been able to connect via video calls. They enjoy talking about Danzell’s hobbies and interests. With summer finally here, Danzell is looking forward to playing Fortnite on his computer, spending time outside, riding his bike, and being around his friends. When he isn’t socializing with friends, he likes to have his own space with his own things (he’s hoping to get a job in the next few years to earn some spending money).
Thinking ahead to where he might want to live one day, Danzell has shared that it’s important to him that he stay in the Twin Cities Metro area in order to maintain birth family relationships, especially with his older siblings and grandmother.
Lyla says, “Danzell is an easy-going young man who thrives when he can be connected to community programs and be involved in activities. An ideal future family would help him be involved with his community and also help keep him focused on what is important with school, work, and all of the other things he may want to accomplish.”
Danzell is a sweet, resilient, and hopeful teen who would bring so much positive energy and joy to a family. He goes with the flow, is open to change, and just wants some stability and consistency in his life.
Details to Note
