RICHMOND, Va. — Denali, 13, is a quiet, reserved and polite young man. He loves to play sports, as well as watching them on TV. It’s hard to describe Denali in just a few short words because he is truly an individual. His tastes are varied and he never wants to just blend in with the crowd.
Denali’s favorite colors are black and red, and he has asked permission to dye his hair red. Denali currently lives in a congregate care setting and desires a family who would be willing to visit him there and help him with the transition into a home.
Denali is learning to express his emotions in a healthy and positive manner as well as working on peer relations.
An ideal family for Denali would also love sports as much as he does and would be willing to help him play basketball and football. He would love a family who could take him fishing and hunting.
In Virginia, we have over 860 children who are ready for foster to adoption. In other words, these children are ready to find their permanent and loving forever families. As Connecting Hearts -The Deborah J Johnston Foundation celebrates National Adoption Month, our “30 Kids in 30 Days” initiative is to bring awareness to 30 kids who are available for forever homes, but also to shed light on the other 830 children who may not be seen. Our kids are all ages and races, they were put in foster care due to no fault of their own.
