“Casey has a heart of gold. He’s honest, open,” Casey’s group home manager says.
The sixteen-year-old prides himself on being respectful to others and is always willing to try new things.
“I’m not afraid to put myself out there,” Casey says with a smile.
Casey has done a lot in his young life. He sang in his school’s talent show, has worked hard to improve his chess game, and has become a multi-sport athlete.
But the one thing Casey hasn’t accomplished yet is finding a forever family.
Casey would thrive in a two-parent home that is patient and wants to know how his day is going. He has a strong bond with his younger biological sister and wants to continue that relationship. Casey also has mentors that he wants to see post adoption.
“Casey is just open to trying new things. He wants to see what life is all about.”
