RICHMOND, Va. — Mark is a nine year-old male who is an active, smart young boy. He enjoys making crafts out of paper and playing video games. Mark stated, “I would like to be an engineer or a police officer one day.” Mark has a vast vocabulary and enjoys reading. He enjoys playing with animals.

Mark also enjoys spending time with family, especially his brother. He is very inquisitive and has a great memory. Often times Mark will remember times and dates of upcoming events; and, likes to follow schedules as accurately as possible.

When Mark finds himself getting upset he has developed a strategy from himself called “turtle time.” Mark has made great improvements on his communication skills where he is vocalizing when he feels himself getting frustrated.

Mark would like to find a forever home that will provide him with the attention and love that he greatly deserves. Mark is very loving and would thrive in a consistent, stable home environment.

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. To learn more and becoming a foster to adoption parent (s) and to see available children click here.
