Portrait of Marion

  • Birth Year: 2004
  • Child ID: 222162
Marion is a true basketball lover! Showcasing his basketball skills is sure to put him in a good mood, and he prides himself on being a good player. The phrase, “with great power, comes great responsibility,” resonates with this teen and his admiration of Spiderman. He does well with peers, and his former foster parent describes Marion as a good kid. He was known for his helpful nature around the home and thrived on routine. Marion isn’t limiting his options for the future. He envisions his first job at a shoe store or restaurant and is interested in attending culinary or barbering school. For now, Marion is focused on learning how to drive. He is in the tenth grade. Marion would do best in a Christian family with a mom and a dad, two dads, or a single dad, in which he is the youngest child in the home; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He will need to remain in contact with his siblings 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. For more information on becoming an adoptive family, please email or call 800-554-2222.
