Active and engaging, 10-year-old Damascus dreams of a forever family with a built-in playmate.
“I’d like there to be another boy – maybe age 9 to 11 – that I could play with,” Damascus says.
“I prefer to have a mom and a dad because a dad usually does dad stuff like play basketball and a mom usually does mom stuff like go to the store,” Damascus says, adding that the likes to do both.
If the house has a pool, all the better.
“I love swimming,” Damascus says.
Swimming is just one of the outdoor activities Damascus enjoys. He also likes to ride his bike and scooter. He says he hopes to join an active family that likes camping, fishing, hiking and four-wheeling.
Damascus will thrive in an active family that provides structure and routine. Ideally, his forever family would allow Damascus to continue the relationship he has with a mentor he visits with each Saturday.
