Meet 14-year-old Damien.

Damien is an active child who likes to go to the park, play outside and his favorite football team is the Dallas Cowboys.

He is a little shy at first…but opens up once he gets to know you. Damien does well in school and earns high grades.

If he could have any cake for his birthday, it would be a vanilla cake with a thick layer of vanilla icing topped with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream. He really loves vanilla!

Damien’s looking for a forever family with an active lifestyle. He would thrive in a two-parent home with plenty of structure and unconditional love.

If you think you could be Damien’s forever family, or for another Texas child, you can call toll free 325-315-8247 or log on to adoptchildren.org for more information.
