Marcus has a blueprint for fun, and it involves technology, toys and games. “Marcus enjoys hands-on activities,” says one of his close adults. “He can tell you all about robotics or Lego builds. He recently built a robotic arm and enjoys putting things together. He has plans to make his own video games, too.” Marcus likes playing games – especially the video variety – jumping on the trampoline and playing with dogs, playing on the tablet and playing with Nerf toys. Flag- and feline-lovers take note because Marcus likes the colors red, white and blue and cats as well as dogs. Forget about Burger King’s pleasing patties or Dairy Queen’s dream creams; Marcus’s revered royal restaurant focuses on tasty pastries and circular sensations. Yes, if he could travel anywhere in the world, Marcus would visit Donut King, which he apparently patronized previously. “They have the biggest donuts in the world!” says Marcus, who also likes satisfying his sweet tooth with cookies, his favorite food. When he’s asked about the qualities he wants in a future forever family, Marcus says he wants one who spends time together doing fun things.

“Marcus is a very motivated youth and continually challenges himself to grow,” says one of the adults close to him. “Marcus does very well at school, and at home, he does well when provided structure and clear expectations. Marcus is a creative and energetic youth. He enjoys spending time with trusted adults and can be very talkative.”

An experienced and patient two-parent forever family would benefit Marcus. He would do well in a family with or without other children, but Marcus strongly desires siblings, especially ones close to his age. His new family must make sure Marcus gets the attention and services he needs to thrive. Finally, Marcus has expressed a desire for a family who has pets, especially a dog or a cat.
