Damon is a sweet and loving boy who adores books and reading! Watching CNN and the local news, especially to be informed about the weather, is an enjoyable part of his day. Some of Damon’s favorite things include the color red, arts & crafts, playing with remote control cars and walkie talkies, and playgrounds. Damon also lists board games among his favorite activities, especially Uno! He has a great appetite and loves peanut butter & jelly, and mashed potatoes. Those who know Damon describe him as an incredibly friendly and charismatic child, noting that everyone who meets Damon falls in love with him. He is really beginning to come out of his shell and enjoys the company of adults. This eighth-grader has an excellent memory and reports loving school. Math is his favorite subject, and he generally receives good grades. His teacher boasts that he is a bright child who loves to help the other kids in the room when he is done with his work, and he is also a huge helper in the classroom. All family types will be considered. His worker notes, “Damon thrives with one-on-one attention and would benefit from a loving, consistent, and active family.” He will need to remain in contact with his sister and foster parents following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services. For Missouri children, both home studied and non-home studied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only home studied families from other states should do so.
