Weekly Feature: Casey

Casey

Casey, born in 2002, would like to be a police officer when he grows up and is currently doing a couple of things which are helping him to prepare. At school, where he gets along well with the other kids, Casey is participating in the ROTC program. And, at home, Casey is “saving the world” and “getting all of the bad people” through his video game playing. When not saving the world, this outgoing Caucasian teen with a good personality enjoys watching shows on ‘Cartoon Network’, playing board games, listening to rap music, and playing all outdoor sports, especially football and basketball, which he also enjoys watching. Casey needs a loving adoptive family who will provide him with the attention, support, encouragement and nurturing environment he needs to continue to thrive and reach his goals.
