Deshawn is a budding musician who just needs a chance to shine. He loves the thought of making music and wants to be a part of a music program in school. He also hopes music is a part of future, either making it or as a DJ. If he owned a nightclub, it would likely be decked out in light blue and chrome, Deshawn’s favorite colors, and it would serve an eclectic menu since Deshawn says he loves all types of food. This animal lover lists cats as his favorite critter. He says Christmas is his favorite holiday, which Deshawn celebrates simply by having fun. On the weekends, Deshawn enjoys going to the gym. He also likes playing pool and football. With his future forever family, Deshawn looks forward to enjoying music together.
His worker really believes in Deshawn’s potential. “Deshawn is an outgoing boy,” the worker says, “but needs a family to show him love and support.” In school, Deshawn is capable of doing better, and he receives assistance to help him thrive. He reports that science is his favorite subject, other than music, of course!
Deshawn has stated a preference for a forever family with a single parent. His new parent or parents would benefit from knowledge of the impact of trauma on a child’s behavior and development. They also must be strong advocates for the services that will help Deshawn excel at home and in school. Deshawn told this worker he is looking for a family who can provide him with love, trust and communication. Finally, since Deshawn loves animals, his worker believes a pet in the home would benefit him, especially if it’s a cat.
