Gift of Love: Dez

It was a fun afternoon of air hockey as Dez and I put our skills to the test. Dez is a very goal driven teenager. He enjoys being around people and often takes the role of a leader. When it comes to school he enjoys science and reading classes. Looking ahead to his future, Dez sees himself on the open road.

"A truck driver," Dez said, "because I like to travel."

Some of his favorite activities include playing basketball and working on computers. He also enjoys watching movies, playing football, and learning.

Dez also loves to, "listen to music," Dez said.

His favorite kind of music is country.

"George Strait, Tim McGraw," Dez said.

And he loves anything to do with music. He's even built his own equipment!

"I can build speakers," Dez said.

Dez craves love and has a great need to belong. He is a thinker and analyzes his thoughts and feelings carefully before speaking.

As for his three wishes, Dez wants to, "see one of my brothers that I haven't seen," Dez said

He also wants to play football and his third wish is to get out of foster care. Dez would love for his forever family to include some older brothers. Brothers he can look up to. Dez is excited about being adopted and has a strong desire to find a family to call his own.

It is very important to Dez that he find a family who he can trust and most importantly show him the Gift of Love.
