Tresean is a silly, energetic 11-year-old boy of African American/Caucasian descent. He initially presents as shy or quiet, however, once Tresean becomes familiar with you he is talkative and will begin to show his affection. Tresean has a great imagination and catches on quickly to anything related to video games, electronics and technology. Currently, Tresean’s biggest interest is Marvel superheroes and action figures. He will play any game, or watch any television show that has to do with his favorite characters. Tresean also likes to spend time outdoors riding his bike or playing in the yard. He is known to be very helpful around the house, especially when it comes to cooking or doing yardwork. Tresean is currently in fifth grade and will be promoted to the middle school in the fall. When asked about his future, Tresean states he "wants a good, fun life like a superhero has.”

Tresean is legally freed for adoption and can be placed in a one or two parent family. He would do best in a home with older children who could serve as positive role models. Interested families should be comfortable with Tresean's ongoing relationship with his birth mother and siblings.

Can you provide the guidance, love and stability that a child needs? If you’re at least 18 years old, have a stable source of income, and room in your heart, you may be a perfect match to adopt a waiting child. Adoptive parents can be single, married, or partnered; experienced or not; renters or homeowners; LGBTQ singles and couples.

The process to adopt a child from foster care requires training, interviews, and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you, and if so, to help connect you with a child or sibling group that your family will be a good match for.
