Quentin is a laid-back, yet insightful, 16-year old who loves music, movies, and playing and watching sports. Whether watching basketball or football, Quentin always cheers for his home-state teams and says proudly, “I’m a Minnesota person all the way!”
At school, Quentin looks forward to being active in Phy Ed, learning about geology in Earth Science, and expressing his creativity by making ceramics in art class. Outside of school, Quentin loves to watch movies (his favorite is Harry Potter), play video games, listen to music, spend time outdoors playing football, basketball, and lacrosse, and collecting rocks—a hobby that was inspired by his fascination with Earth Science.
Like most kids his age, Quentin says his dream day with friends would be spent at Valley Fair and the mall—two activities that feel even more dream-like during a time of social distancing.
Although Quentin has faced challenges in his life that many kids his age have not, his life experiences have helped him become more empathetic and aware of the feelings of others. His Child-Specific Recruiter Jazzmin says, “Quentin is extremely resilient, caring, and compassionate. He speaks up for others who may not have the courage to speak up for themselves.”
When Jazzmin first met Quentin, she immediately noticed his kind-hearted personality. Her biggest hope for Quentin is that he finds an equally open, warm, and kind forever family who is supportive of maintaining his birth family relationships in the Twin Cities METRO area.
“An ideal family for Quentin is one that understands the foster care system, as well as past trauma and behavioral responses,” Jazzmin says. “Quentin would thrive in a family that is loving, supportive, and can provide both guidance and independence.”
With deep thought and insight, Quentin says above all he hopes for the same things most people hope for from their families: love and support.
Details to Note
Due to contracts with the Minnesota Department of Human Services, the cost of adopting a child from Minnesota foster care is virtually free to families.
