Being handy and helpful is something Jesse takes pride in.

Working with his hands and completing chores makes him feel needed.  So, a social worker says he’s always very helpful and caring around people.

The 10-year-old is a 5th grader who enjoys learning, and he thrives with structure and one-on-one attention.

He also likes having fun.

“I like swimming, I like basketball, and watching TV,” he said. “I like to go shopping for shoes and clothes…I love Chinese food.”

He has dreams of working in law enforcement some day.

“I want to grow up and be a police man,” he explains.

But what he really dreams about is having a family.

“I look for a Mom and Dad,” he said.

“I want my own family that will do stuff with me and take me places and go somewhere.“

He would also like to continue having a relationship with his siblings.

“I love my sister and brother. I like playing games with them,” he smiled.
