Friendly youth is eager to learn

Posted: February 18, 2013

Marqease is an affectionate and vibrant 16-year-old. He is sympathetic and caring, and excels in entertaining young children. Very social, he goes out of his way to greet people. He responds well to praise and to one-on-one attention from adults.

In his leisure time, Marqease enjoys listening to music, playing video games, and learning about cars and motorcycles. He can select the clothes he wants to wear each day but needs assistance to be sure his outfit is complete. Marqease is able to wash his hands, brush his teeth, and bathe himself.

In school, Marqease benefits from special-education services in a program that focuses on academic skills and understanding boundaries. Eager to learn, he pays close attention to his teacher and follows instructions well.

Marqease wants very much to be adopted and looks forward to meeting a family that will welcome him into their home. He needs a patient, committed family who will provide a loving and structured environment for him. Marqease is eligible for financial and medical subsidy.

State and federal assistance programs offer financial help to adoptive parents of eligible children to help offset medical fees and any other necessary costs that may arise during the adoption process and beyond.
