Learning about history is fun and fascinating for Jalon! He also enjoys keeping busy and relishes time spent playing basketball or football or going for a nice hike outdoors. Jalon has been described as respectful, friendly, and personable. His best-loved food is pizza.

As an eleventh grader, Jalon’s favorite subjects are social studies and biology.

A two-parent family in which he can be the youngest child is preferred; however, Jalon’s caseworker will consider all family types. He would like to maintain contact with his grandmother following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

For Missouri children, homestudied and non-homestudied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.
