This is Jesse.

He is a 17-year-old boy.

Meet Jesse! Jesse is a very polite, easy-going and calm young man. One of his providers describes him as “the kindest child I know.” Jesse is generally in a good mood. He has a great imagination and he enjoys playing with his Matchbox cars and stuffed animals and creating stories involving the items. Jesse takes great pride in his appearance and he likes to dress up and do his hair. He also keeps his bedroom and belongings organized and he likes his surroundings to be clean. Jesse is into eating only healthy food, most recently asking for a gluten free, vegetarian birthday cake.

Jesse would do best in a family that encourages him to try new activities and to take part in their family activities. Jesse greatly enjoys school and likes to be social, but he does need assistance in navigating how to interact with his peers. Jesse’s parents need to be patient with him, assist him with his daily routine and provide him with a consistent daily routine

Note: Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) has ceased offering the non-relative Adoption Only program. CYFD does continue to offer the Foster Care program. The Foster Care Program differs in that that the goal of the program is to ultimately reunite the child with their biological parent while the child is in your care for approximately a year. Should you become a Foster Parent it is also a possibility that the children that you foster may become available for adoption.
