Talk about a breath of fresh air! We know that phrase sounds cliché, but it really epitomizes Kequan. As one of his close adults explains, “Kequan is not afraid to think outside the box. He is determined to do what he wants even when others tell him it’s not realistic. For example, he wishes to become a boxer. When others tell him that is not a realistic career, he does not waiver.” Kequan carries that determined outlook to other areas of his life. He looks for ways to be self-sufficient, and Kequan makes sure he takes part in simple pleasures such as eating pizza, petting a dog’s noggin and reading a book in a comfy chair.

When the final bell rings at school, Kequan will race home where he’ll enjoy playing video games or spending time in the cozy company of his good friends. This determined young man is also busy and athletic. “Kequan is active in sports and enjoyed playing basketball on his school team,” says one of his close adults, who adds that participating in the team sport helps Kequan with his independence skills. “He is able to walk to basketball practice and be on time without reminders from others.” Because he’s such a refreshing young man, Kequan says he’s open to doing “anything” with his future forever family.

“Kequan (pronounced Kee-wan) is a joy to be around,” says one of the adults who cares about him most. “He has a smile that lights up the room. He is a true jokester who loves to laugh and bring laughter to a room. Kequan is courageous as he faces opposition head on, and he is very resilient and optimistic. He can quickly find joy in difficult situations.”

A forever family must be willing to adopt Trevon, Kequan and Markwon together. The boys would do best with one or two experienced and trauma-informed parents. Their new family needs to be open to letting the boys maintain their important relationships including with their siblings. Their family must make sure Trevon, Keyquan and Markwon receive the services that will help them function at their best. The family should be patient and understanding as the boys transition into their new home.
