A big imagination and even bigger heartDesmond (9060B)
Desmond is a creative guy who loves telling stories! He is excellent at making up stories right on the spot that are sure to keep you entertained. He can take some time to warm up to new people, but if you put in the effort you’ll be rewarded! If he has his choice, he usually prefers to stay inside rather than going outside. (Desmond was stung by a bee once and doesn’t trust bugs anymore.) If Desmond does go outside, he loves to spend time at the pool.
He likes to play video games or watch videos on his tablet. His favorites are Minecraft and Roblox where he gets to really stretch his imagination and come up with big, elaborate designs! Desmond has a big heart and if he had wishes, he’d rescue all the homeless pets and give all homeless people their very own home.
Desmond would do best in a two-parent home with a mom and dad, although a single mother with strong supports would be considered. It would be best if he is the only child in the home, so that he can receive plenty of attention and support. He would prefer an African-American family. Parents should be able to offer lots of positive reinforcement and make time for him. Families should be willing to tackle any therapeutic or educational needs Desmond may have. Desmond has brothers (Jayden (9060A) & Pyerre (9060C)) with whom he is very close; it will be important for him to maintain those relationships. If the right family is identified, Desmond’s team may consider an adoption for all three boys. Interested families should understand the impact trauma can have on children.
