Damareis is an energetic and helpful boy with brown eyes and a big smile. He is quiet and watchful, and aims to please others. Damareis likes watching cartoons, going to church and the library, coloring, doing art activities, singing, listening to music, and attending the Boys and Girls Club. He also enjoys his karate classes and swimming lessons. Damareis likes to ride his bicycle and scooter outside and he has an interest in cooking. His favorite foods are pizza, salad, chicken, vegetables, and fruit. Damareis has an appreciative nature and likes to help with chores.

Damareis receives supports to help him excel academically. At home, he does best when there are straightforward, clear rules to follow and fair consequences that are consistently enforced. Damareis is motivated by verbal praise and recognition for his achievements.

Damareis is very close with his younger brother; the boys must remain in contact. His brother’s adoptive family is supportive of ongoing and frequent contact. Damareis is needing a family in Wisconsin who will advocate for his needs, be firm and fair with consequences, yet affectionate, and who is willing to work closely with his school. He would like a family who can continue to encourage and facilitate his favorite activities. Damareis has a lot of love to share with his future family and needs compassionate adults who are committed to him through thick and thin.
