Name, age: David, 13.

Background: David is a bright teen with a great sense of humor. This active and engaging young man is always first to volunteer to help out. David is athletic (he especially enjoys football), handy with tools and has a good singing voice (expressed in his school choir). His love of music includes rap, R&B, country and alternative.

David is doing well academically in the eighth grade. His favorite subjects are English and science; he benefits from extra support in math. After he graduates, David would like to become a professional football player, a teacher or own a Vietnamese restaurant.

David attends counseling and responds well to structure and clear rules. He needs attentive parental supervision to keep him on track.

Needed: Single dad or two-parent home. A family involved in the Vietnamese community would be a plus. Older siblings or a large extended family would be beneficial. “David has a lot of potential and needs a family now to give him a direction,” his caseworker notes.
