Marquis is a charismatic child who has a very sweet smile. He is smart and loves to figure out how things work (doors, locks, puzzles, swings). He enjoys spending time outside as much as possible, swinging or riding anything that spins. He attends high school and proudly meets goals that are set for him. Marquis is non-verbal and is learning sign language to communicate. He likes to be congratulated and praised.
Marquis has formed attachments with others and seeks affection and approval from those whom he trusts. He will thrive and flourish in a patient and loving family who will help him feel loved and secure. He needs a positive family that will help establish a new foundation of success for him. His forever family will commit to allowing him a safe place to express himself and offer an environment where he can grow developmentally and continue to reach his goals. The family needs to be willing to continue and/or access the resources his needs.
