Meet 14-year-old Damien.

He’s an active kid who likes to play outside and his favorite football team is the Dallas Cowboys.

Damien can be shy, but he does well in school, and says – if he could have any cake for his birthday, it would be vanilla, with vanilla icing, and topped with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream.

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 for more information.
