About DeShawnta "John"
John is a newly- turned teenager. John enjoys being outdoors in the summer. He is involved with his schools basketball team and has a lot of fun with this! He is a sensitive young man with a love for animals. He has a large toy animal collection and has stated he would like to live on a farm one day so he can take care of farm animals. He also enjoys playing with his foster parent's dogs. He enjoys watching the Big Cat Diaries on TV as well as playing games on his tablet. John also utilizes an IEP for school and does well with this.
John has a strong connection with their current foster family that will need to be continued in an adoptive home. He also has contact with other siblings that are placed in different homes which will need to continue as well. An adoptive family will need to continue connecting John to therapy services so they can continue to process their feelings towards everything that has occurred in their lives. John is legally freed for adoption at this time.
The Indian Child Welfare Act applies, however all families will be considered. John has an older brother that is very important to him. A family will need to be able to continue this contact through letters, Skype calls, phone calls, or face to face visits. A family will also need to continue contact with John's current foster family.
